TV announcer Maya Kobayashi, 29, revealed on her blog this week that she will become a freelance presenter at the end of March. She will work on a freelance basis in a new TBS news program to air from March 30.
The announcement of her transition to freelance work came after her resignation from TBS made news last Saturday. Her blog was accessed more than 500,000 times, and is still reportedly experiencing server difficulties. A message has been posted in its place, in which she said: “My love for TBS is twice as strong as anyone else’s, and I’m really happy to be able to continue working with TBS.”
Kobayashi finished her message with an expression of gratitude to her family, friends, viewers and all those at TBS she has worked with.© Japan Today
