UNMA presents daily weather forecasts during the News Bulletins on UBC (Uganda Broadcasting Corporation) and Star TV in English and Luganda, where Kenyena Mollen is one of the English weather presenters.

The other two Weather Presenters that received an Honorable Mention were Monica Lopez (Television Española – from Spain) and Denislava Banova (Nova Broadcasting Group – from Bulgaria).
