He used social media, Facebook, to announce his new employment.
In his post, he stated “Ameanza Kanzi Mpya CNN-2021-International Correspondent”.
Madowo has been promoted by CNN from being a Nairobi-based correspondent to being a Network’s International Correspondent.
“I have long admired CNN International’s award-winning coverage, and I’m honoured to be joining such a talented team. I look forward to sharing the full spectrum of life in one of the most dynamic parts of the world with CNN’s global audiences,” he said.

Two months ago, the journalist got promoted by CNN to become a Nairobi-based correspondent. Having proved to be an outstanding journalist, he has now earned a new position in July as the Network’s International Correspondent.
Madowo said he loved reporting from the United States and other parts of the globe, but it’s a true honor to return to Africa at such a vital moment for Kenya and the continent.
In fact, the CNN Senior Vice President of Newsgathering and Managing Editor Europe Middle East and Africa, says “Larry is an experienced journalist whose expertise across politics, business, entertainment and hard news will play into our diverse coverage of East Africa and beyond.”
Madowo, a Kenyan native, began his broadcasting career at Kenya Television Network (KTN) when he was 20 years old.
Madowo formerly worked as the BBC’s North America Correspondent in Washington.
