This is how Joy Doreen Biira debuted in the Media Industry
Just two semesters after joining campus, opportunity came knocking. A friend asked Joy to accompany him to an audition to the newly opened NBS TV station and she ended up auditioning.
“It was not my intention to audition. After all, I barely looked the part. I was dressed in jeans, t-shirt and boots. However, amid pleas from one of the crew members who saw me along the hallway, I agreed to, at the very least, say my name in front of the camera and what a disaster it was. Instead of looking at the camera I kept glancing at the interviewers,” Joy Doreen Biira confesses.
As Joy Doreen Biira was about to leave, an answer to one final question struck a chord. When asked what she liked to watch on television, she replied she had no time for television as she was an evening student but perhaps the station could consider starting a morning show to cater for people who missed news due to their busy schedules? That same day, she got a call back asking her to report to the TV station the following day. Two weeks later, she took her place in front of the camera on Uganda’s first ever morning show. She was only 20. Over the next five years she would rise through the ranks to become one of the stations leading faces.

Joy Doreen Biira bullied on Kenya Social Media
Kenyans on Social media in December, 2015 decided to take issues personal with KTN news anchor, Joy Doreen Biira, after a popular media house did a story on their website on what the sultry screen siren’s one year old baby has taught her so far as a parent.
The media house used a photo of the anchor nearly revealing too much to an extend exposing herself while seated in a suggestive manner as the cover.
However, both the photo and the story did not go well with Kenyans on Facebook and therefore caused an uproar.
They cyber-bullied her with all manner of insults, with some even going as far as asking weird questions like whether her one year old baby is the one who taught her how to sit badly.
