Olufunmilola Aduke Iyanda (born July 27, 1971), better known as Funmi Iyanda is a multi award winning broadcaster, journalist, columnist and blogger. She produced and hosted Nigeria’s most popular and authoritative talk show New Dawn with Funmi, which aired on the national network for over eight years. Funmi is the CEO of Ignite Media
Funmi's foray into television began when she started producing and presenting "Good Morning Nigeria" a breakfast magazine television show. The show became a hit, with its "Heroes" segment which exalted the achievement of deserving members of the society and "Street Life", which unlike many shows at the time went out on the streets in search of compelling Nigerian human interest stories.
The show focused on the injustices suffered by Nigerians, particularly the vulnerable members such as women and children. The show was syndicated on national television.
