A prominent journalist cum blogger is expected to assume the position of Sports Editor of the soon to be launched Arena Sports Channel on Astro.

The channel is expected to go on air in either March or April and the personality is expected to assume his position by next month according to industry sources.

It is a move up the ladder for him and it irks well for all the hard work he has put in to be rewarded with such a position. His knowledge of sports is vast and I can olny offer him my congratulations.

And before anyone asks, that person is not Loose Cannon for he has been earmarked for a position in his old paper come May, a fact that he has repeatedly denied I must say.

Nonetheless it is heartening to note the progress achieved by the soon to be Sports Editor of Malaysia’s first local sports channel.

All the best to you.
