Tonight will see another show I have had the privilege of working on hit the airwaves. The show is called Sportsnite, and it is a talk show that will air weekly on SABC2 from tonight. Think of it as a Jay Leno-type late night talk show, but instead of celebrities as guests we have stars from the sporting world.

Our goal is to ease ourselves into the weekend, by meeting the personalities behind the sports stars and find out who they are and what they do in their downtime. This lifestyle chat show uses a multi-sport platform appealing to all sports fans.

Trusted with hosting the show is Mr Bouga Luv - Kabelo. The
Kora Award-winning musician recently completed the Two Oceans marathon in Cape Town, and is ready to take on this new challenge. The TKZee star is a big sports fan, and will bring his unique flavour to this decidedly different talk show. In fact he already has - he just recorded the theme music for the series.

Please join us for episode one, tonight at 21:30 on SABC2. We chat to 7's players Mzwandile Stick and Kyle Brown, street-style soccer champ Chris Njokwana and SA women's hockey captain, Marsha Marescia.

Sportsnite airs every Friday at 21:30 on SABC2.
