Bayo Onanuga was the former Managing Director, Editor-in-Chief of TheNEWSGroup.

He is a fellow of the Nigerian Guild of Editors and a member of the World Association of Newspapers.

At the university, Onanuga was a John F. Kennedy Scholar, arising from the scholarship, he won for participating in a national essay contest in 1977.

After graduation, Onanuga first worked as Client Service Executive at Practions Partners, before he crossed over to OGTV (1982-1983).
