Sacking TV presenter Osama Kamal: How graduates of the Presidential Leadership Program manage Egypt’s TV channels | MadaMasr
On August 6, television presenter Osama Kamal was about to set off to the headquarters of the DMC television network in Egyptian Media Production City to present his talk show “DMC Evening,” as he did every Tuesday. Just before he set out, he received a phone call from a member of the program’s production team informing him that another presenter, Ramy Radwan, had arrived at the studio with his own production team in tow and that they were getting ready to present the show themselves.
Kamal usually anchored his show four days a week, from Tuesday to Friday. Assuming there had been a mistake in the broadcast schedule, Kamal called a high-level security official who handles the channel’s daily affairs to find out what was happening. It was then that he received the staggering news. “There is no mistake,” the security official reportedly told him. “Ramy Radwan will present the show instead of you today and going forward until new instructions are given.”
Since then, Radwan has continued to present the program without any official announcement from DMC regarding Kamal’s sudden departure.
