Announcers picked for World Cup
TV channel MBC said that they will implement an unprecedented three-person system - one broadcaster and two commentators - to deliver commentary on Korea’s games taking place at Brazil.
The three will have a trial broadcast at a warm-up match with Tunisia on Wednesday followed by several major games, including the nation’s first World Cup match against Russia on June 18.
“Experienced broadcaster Kim Sung-joo will take the central role, while former striker Ahn Jung-hwan and former defense player Song Chong-gug will make versatile comments about the game,” said one associate from a sports broadcasting station.
