Solomon has been producing and hosting “TechTalk With Solomon” weekly show on Ethiopian Broadcasting Service (EBS), the 1st privately owned TV network in Ethiopia with ~30 million viewers, for the eight years. During his journey as a TV personality, he produced and hosted more than 220 episodes, interviewed more than 85 prominent guests, covered more than 600 science and technology topics, and reported from the ground of several high-profile US organizations like NASA, Boeing, Microsoft, Consumer Electronic Show, US States Department, and The George Washington University. Since its launch, Solomon’s prime time show has gained huge popularity by millions of viewers.
There are many brilliant young people in our country. We do not see them because they did not get a chance to have exposure, a marketing strategy and support, or they do not have the experience to pitch their innovation to others. If we manage to give them a platform, they can change their nation.
