I am a great fan of radio talk shows. One of the shows I like listening to is the one presented by Criselda Kananda on Metro FM every Thursday.
But I am disturbed by Kananda's behaviour on air. I agree that this lady of the airwaves is doing a good job by educating our nation about HIV-Aids.
But Kananda is taking advantage of the listeners because she wants to be treated like a demigod. When she is not feeling well she takes out her frustrations on the listeners.
She has warned all her listeners not to ask her the question "How are you?" when a simple response like "I'm okay" would do. But the woman refuses to respond to the greeting. I have realised that when she is happy she responds to the greeting and even goes as far as asking if someone is really fine.
It disturbs me that some listeners have to apologise to her for asking her how she is.
I want to remind Kananda that this is not her show, but a Metro FM initiative of which she is only the presenter.
The station is using her as a tool to educate the nation on health matters.
I just hope she takes stock and becomes professional in the way she conducts herself on air.
She is clued-up on her subject, but she must improve her attitude.
