Broadcaster Bridget Otoo has made her first appearance on Metro TV as a newscaster on Wednesday, August 4, 2021.
Otoo's appearance brings an end to lingering rumours on social media that she had been sacked barely 24 hours after she was appointed.
Otoo, an experienced journalist, was recently announced as the newest employee of Metro TV, Ghana's oldest private TV station.
The announcement indicated that Otoo was to handle News Night, the station's prime-time news programme. She was to start on Tuesday, August 3.

But Otoo did not appear for her show on Tuesday leading to many rumours on social media that her appointment had been revoked.
The rumours were started by social media posts from leading members of the opposition National Democratic Congress including Felix Kwakye Ofosu and Stan Dogbe.
Their posts suggested that Otoo had been axed because some people in government had ordered Metro TV to sack the broadcaster who is a staunch critic of the Akufo-Addo administration. Otoo is on record to have declared her support for John Mahama and the NDC.
After the rumours went viral, Otoo has made her first appearance. Appearing on set Otoo looked dazzling in a red dress and she delivered very well.
Otoo shared photos of her first appearance on her Twitter handle.
