Setanta’s team of broadcasters for next season’s Premiership coverage is starting to come together nicely. Setanta will feature:
- Angus Scott. Former ITV Sport presenter.
- Steve McManaman: The former Liverpool and Real Madrid player has worked with ITV and ESPN Star as a match analyst.
- Steve Bower: Former MUTV commentator, reporter and presenter.
More details about the acquisition of Scott and McManaman can be found here. Interestingly, Setanta has decided to commentate on the matches from the grounds itself rather than studios (as TWI does for most of the Premiership games). This decision is to be applauded.
Scott and McManaman will front the Saturday 12:15pm ET and Monday 3pm ET matches. Hopefully we here in the States will be able to watch the duo on Setanta Sports.
