Broadcast sports journalist Fentuo Tahiru Fentuo has joined the Joy Sports team as Editor.
The 34-year-old moves to the Joy Brands (Myjoyonline, Joy FM, Joy Business, JoyNews, Joy Prime and Hitz FM) of the Multimedia Group Limited, after leaving his role at Citi FM/Citi TV, where he worked as Head of Sports at the time of his departure.
In an article to announce his new post, Fentuo stated: “This is an exciting new opportunity for me. Some of my mentors in the industry, like Karl Tufuoh, Michael Oti Adjei and Ernest Koranteng, have all passed through Joy; I’m thrilled by the prospect of taking the same stage as they did and showing what I’ve got,”
Fentuo started his career in sports broadcasting as an intern at radio stations across Kumasi, while a student at the University of Ghana, Legon.
Upon graduation, he rose to become Sports Editor at one of those stations, Ultimate FM, before moving to Accra to join Citi in 2017.
In the ensuing five years – and especially after his June 2020 appointment to the helm of the Citi Sports crew – Fentuo helped create one of the strongest sports news brands in Ghana.
He was, most notably, host of Citi TV’s Scorecard – a Sunday night sports show that reviews the weekend’s major sporting activities around the world – and of Football Made in Ghana, a Pidgin-English show dedicated to Ghanaian football.
Fentuo was also co-host of Citi FM’s popular Friday evening show, Sports Panorama.
