Seun Okinbaloye, Meet Nigeria’s Most Engaging Political Reporter

Channels television has proved to be all-time best station in the history of Nigeria’s broadcast industry. People made that happen for this station. One of them is Seun Okinbaloye, the most engaging political reporter in Nigeria.
Seun is a dominant brand on Channels TV with unmistakable Afro hairstyle and gentility which do not reflect his doggedness in the line of duty. This multiple-award winning political and investigative journalist is a household name in Nigeria, with his popularity becoming more excitingly domineering during elections. This is one of the key reasons Channels TV is the station to watch during elections. Viewers love watching him engage political gladiators on screen. His experience in the broadcast industry spans over a decade. Seun’s reports have elicited government attention to seemingly forgotten communities, and abandoned or neglected developmental projects.
As the host of “Sunday Politics” and “Politics Today,” two of Nigeria’s most-watched political programmes, Seun’s rating among his colleagues in the political journalism industry is exceptionally high. He has interviewed some of Nigeria’s most prominent leaders including serving Governors, federal lawmakers, and former leaders. His presentation style could be described as audience-friendly and stylishly captivating, keeping viewers glued to their sets throughout the duration of his programme.


Seun won the 2019 edition of Nigeria Media Merit Award (NMMA) for Television Programme Presenter of the Year. He was announced winner of the award while he was in the studio presenting Sunday Politics, a programme that is in his DNA. The award ceremony was held on Sunday, December 15, 2019 at the Muson Center, Lagos, the same time his programme was on air. If you understand the competitive nature of the television industry in Nigeria then you will appreciate what it means to be named Television Presenter of the Year. That was the same night Channels television was named NMMA Best Television station of the year for the 13th time.
Seun is in an atmosphere that only reflects classy broadcasting, and this is the primary reason his on air and off air personality reflect greatness. He is a role model to upcoming Nigerians who want to carve out a career in television broadcasting.
