This blog had reported this last year and it seems the FM stations have finally paid heed to the call . Jambo FM which has been an offshoot of Radio Africa-home to Kiss FM and Classic 105.2 FM - is going into fully fledged sports after doing trial sessions.
Famous names such as Bramwell Mwololo and Jacob Mulee both former footballers ( and coach for the latter) are among the few already working at the station.
Among its offerings will be live commentaries of football(soccer) games from the Kenya Premier League, English Premier League, La Liga, Champions League and even Africa Cup of Nations and the World Cup.
The other offerings will include sports like rugby,swimming,motorsport and other major sports events.
What I'm wondering will they do what they have been copying from a local radio station where the broadcasters watch the game on cable TV and start running commentaries and adding voice-overs to seem like they are covering the games live. While the local enthusiasts maybe enjoying the commentaries ( I fall for it once in awhile),there are things called 'TV rights', 'plagiarism' which they ought to take care of.
Otherwise a noble idea worth its time.
