Kenya Institute of Mass Communication History

The Kenya Institute of Mass Communication (KIMC) was established in 1961 and was named as the then Voice of Kenya Training School. Its main purpose was to train electronic engineering and technicians for the then, Kenya Broadcasting Service (KBS), that was later rebranded in 1962 as the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC). KBC was then nationalized in 1964, and changed its brand to Voice of Kenya (VOK).
Nationalization occasioned the departure of expatriates who worked at the broadcaster, creating an urgent need for qualified manpower to fill the vacant positions. In 1965, the new Voice of Kenya acquired a grant to start what became to be known as the Voice of Kenya Training School.
KIMC has grown into one of the most respected institutions of its kind in Africa admitting students not only from Kenya but also from several African countries. Over the years, the institute has trained students from countries such as Somalia, Sudan, and Rwanda among others.
The institute is now equipped with modern facilities for training in the fields of electronic and telecommunication engineering, film production, radio and television production, print and broadcast journalism, electronic and studio technology.As the ICT sector grows, it has become necessary for the media training institutions to develop new programs as well as expand the existing ones to produce graduates with the media market desired skills to satisfy the increasing demand for middle level media personnel.
