Award-winning television personality and actress, Joselyn Dumas has parted ways with the Multimedia Group seven months after joining the media giant, Correspondent can report.
Deep throat sources at the media conglomerate revealed to Correspondent that she resigned because she was failing to produce the needed results.
Joselyn Dumas joined the Multimedia Group in March 2018 and was described as ‘talented presenter’ who was set to leave a huge mark at the station.
She was assigned to join Naa Ashorkor and Sammy Forson to help transform the flagship radio station of the group, Joy FM.
The big money signing joined Lexis Bill as the co-host of the station’s late afternoon show, Drive Time on Joy FM.
She was also billed to be hosting shows on Joy News and Joy Prime.
Her signing was greeted with pomp and pageantry as the media group hoped that her coming to the group will help its English speaking station, Joy FM outclass its competitors.
Seven months down the lane, the actress parted ways with the Media Group for reasons best known to the company and the actress.
Her ‘dismissal’ has since been communicated to all staff of the company.
Her signing was said to have caused disaffection amongst staff members at the media firm as her role was not clearly defined.
Some of the staff believed that there were already enough capable hands to execute her tasks and hence her signing was unnecessary.
Correspondent further gathered from its impeccable sources within the company that she parted ways with the company for non-performance.
