South African broadcaster Carol Tshabalala has gotten a big international TV gig as she is set to anchor Premier League Football show in the London.
The award-wining broadcaster has gradually built her career and is now a regular face in British soccer show, the Barclays Premier League Football Today. She is set to star the show alongside former Sunderland and Spurs player Darren Bent and former West Ham star Matthew Upson.
The show is poised to broadcast on SuperSport on Wednesday, November 23, 2016 at 15h30. London clubs would be the centre of discussions so Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Crystal Palace fans are expected to tune in.
Tshabalala is one of the top African broadcasters in London today. She has interviewed top African acts like John Obi Mikel – who was recently relieved of his contract at Chelsea FC – and others.
She has been pictured with several African football acts. Only a few African women are in professional football broadcasting but she has carved a niche for herself as the only African-based presenter to join the English Premier League sportscasters.
Tshabalala would be starring the show alongside Upson, who has experience playing for London sides. Upson started with Luton Town in the late 90s but moved to Arsenal before the turn of the millennium. Whilst at Arsenal, Upson spent time on loan at Nottingham Forest, Crystal Palace, and Reading FC. He eventually moved to Birmingham, before spending time at West Ham United and Stoke City. Upson also played for Brighton, Leicester City and MK Dons.
Bent started his own career at Ipswitch, then he played for Charlton, Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland. He also featured for Fulham, Aston Villa and Derby.
The trio would be discussing London clubs on the show.
