Dr. Joel Isabirye, the consultant and technical officer at TM TV, confirmed the news and revealed how he has enjoyed working with Nameere on the new project.

Nameere is a very focused and hard-working go getter! I have enjoyed putting this project together as her technical arm. I am glad finally a media practitioner, moreover a TV presenter, has started a TV Station. I have been advising veteran journalists to take this route but to my shock, this young lady approached my team with this magical idea. I was beyond shocked and impressed. Nameere is so passionate about her project. She has a unique program line upset for her viewers and I promise you, that girl is one to watch!

Hon. Florence Namayanja, the new Mayor Masaka City welcomed the news and advised Nameere to set up the station that will be balanced and be the voice of the people.

A city must at least have a TV station but we had none in Masaka City so it is great news that our daughter of the soil is starting it. I hope it will be balanced and give an equal voice to all people.

Hon. Florence Namayanja.

Justine Nameere, 31, became popular in 2012 as a presenter on NTV Uganda’s ‘Life Stories show’ before resigning in mid 2013 due to ‘mistreatment.’

She started her own production company where she filmed her shows, working with different media houses; Bukedde TV, UBC TV, Salt TV, NBS TV and BBS TV as a content provider.

In 2016, Nameere was involved in bickering with NTV ‘Akawungeezi’ news reader and ‘Mwasuze Mutya’ presenter, Faridah Nakazibwe.

Nakazibwe accused Nameere of of trying to wreck her marriage by sending messages to by then hubby, Umar Ssali. Nakazibwe later got to know the truth and separated with Ssali but she refused to apologise to Nameere.

Nameere has also tried her luck in politics but flopped twice. In October 2020, she was defeated in the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM)  party primaries for the Central Region youth parliamentary seat.
