Award-winning news anchor and TV personality, Natalie Fort, has spoken for the first time after returning to the airwaves as a news anchor with TV3.
In a post on social media, she has expressed happiness over her to return to her role as a newscaster with TV3.
Fort went off the airwaves in July 2019 after so many months as one of TV3's topmost female newscasters.
In a statement she released at the time, Fort announced that she was not resigning but going on leave for a year.
While she had indicated that she was going for further studies, rumours were rife that Fort was going away because she was pregnant.
Initially, the rumours were that a TV presenter whose name starts with 'N' had gotten pregnant and was in trouble because there were about four men who could be responsible.
Though the name was not clearly stated, some blogs decoded the rumour suggesting it was Fort and that sources at her workplace had suggested she had gone on leave to hide the pregnancy.
Fort strongly denied the pregnancy reports and even threatened to sue blogs and news outlets who carried the reports.
Exactly, one year after going away, Fort has returned as promised and had her first news reading on Monday, 13 July, and she shared a photo.
It was while sharing the photo that Fort expressed her happiness and also indicated that she missed her fans.
"Happy to be back on @tv3_ghana Missed you all ❤️," she captioned the photo.
