Kenya Institute of Mass Communication

Job Description

The Kenya Institute of Mass Communication (KIMC) was established in 1961 and was named as the then Voice of Kenya Training School. Its main purpose was to train electronic engineering and technicians for the then, Kenya Broadcasting Service (KBS), that was later rebranded in 1962 as the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC). KBC was then nationalized in 1964, and changed its brand to Voice of Kenya (VOK). Nationalization occasioned the departure of expatriates who worked at the broadcaster, creating an urgent need for qualified manpower to fill the vacant positions. In 1965, the new Voice of Kenya acquired a grant to start what became to be known as the Voice of Kenya Training School.
