Women in South Africa can look forward to a sports show on radio, hosted by and dedicated to women in sport. Sports boffin and TV presenter Mpho Maboi will take up a solo slot on The Ultimate Sport Show every Thursday on MetroFM. Mpho will talk about all things related to women in the sports industry. News, views and even sports as a business: Mpho has us covered.
Women are still very much underrepresented in the sports industry in South Africa. Although we’d like to see women in sport being mainstreamed rather than treated separately, this show will help bring women’s sports to centre stage. It’s not aimed at women alone, but rather at lovers of sport in general, regardless of gender. Speaking to TshishaLIVE, Mpho said that she’s looking forward to both women and men supporting women in sport.
Talking about the huge responsibility of this new role, she added: ‘As women we have our own struggles and as women in sport there are issues we just didn’t get a chance to discuss because we never had a platform just for them, issues on an off the field. I am happy that I am part of the solution.’
You can listen to The Ultimate Sport Show every weekday on MetroFM at 18h00 -19h30; and catch Mpho’s slot on Thursdays, from the 24th of August onwards.
