Former CITI FM presenter Nana Akosua Hanson is the new host of YFM’s Morning Show Ryse & Shyne, can exclusively say.

She replaces former host MsNaa, who has since left the station.

Hanson officially joins the Global Media Alliance-owned medium on Monday March 16, this website can also report.

She resigned from her CITI FM job on Friday, just in time for her new role.

MsNaa’s departure saw Giovani Caleb, and Jay Foley sit in as interim hosts. The station’s handlers however promised it wouldn’t be long before they go for a substantive host.

As things stand, the young lady becomes the new, substantive host of Ryse & Shyne, which means Caleb, and Foley can concentrate on their managerial roles of Programmes Manager and General Manager respectively.

One of urban broadcasting’s rising names, she presented the entertainment news segment on Brunch in the Citi, which was until recently hosted by Jessica Opare Saforo.

Akosua is also a co-host for the entertainment magazine show on local tv 30 Minitz.

Hanson is the younger sister of Shatta Wale’s manager, Lawrence Asiamah Hanson, a.k.a Bulldog.
