The Republic of Kenya is a country in East Africa. The progress made by Kenya's media industry is noteworthy given the continent's history that has had a devastating effect on the industry. At independence most African states had media that could have been developed into vibrant institutions (de Beer, Kasoma, Megwa & Steyn, 1995). In most cases, however, African nations engineered systematic schemes that decimated the industry. The print media in Kenya can be divided into four sectors, regular daily newspapers, magazines, regional newspapers, and the printed sheets that were circulated for newspapers in the urban centre streets. The oldest mass circulating newspaper is the Standard founded in 1902. Some of the leading online newspapers are mentioned below.
