Veteran Nigerian broadcaster Cyril Stober, who had been a news anchor at Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) for 30 years, has retired.
Although there was speculation he had been working on a contract basis, after reportedly resigning from NTA in 2015, news of his retirement has spread like wildfire.
Cyril began his broadcasting career with NTA Minna and anchored the NTA news at 21.00.
A respected figure in the Nigeria media industry, he will be remembered for his habitual introduction: “Good evening. I am Cyril Stober and this is NTA news.”
