The “fight” began shortly after the 11:00 a.m. news when Sam started complaining live on air that Flavia had been snapping her fingers and trying to distract him as he was reading the news.
She in turn asked why he had come late into the studio for the news and interrupted her show, “AM to PM”.
What to the listeners sounded like an angry exchange of words that went on for a minute was, in fact, just another of the friendly dramas that usually take place between them on air.

Three weeks later, June 29, 2015, she made her debut as a news anchor at NTV (pictured here adjusting her ear piece during a break that first day.)
An all-round media personality — on stage, on radio, on TV, online and who seems to permanently trend on social media — she knows what to say, how to say it, when to say it and where to say it in such a way that always triggers off a blaze of gossip, speculation, amusement and chatter among the Ugandan online community and her army of fans.
