Presenter Kay Murray leaves beIN SPORTS to pursue new opportunities

In the second major departure for beIN SPORTS this summer, presenter Kay Murray has announced she’s leaving the sports network.

Speaking to World Soccer Talk, Murray revealed she’s moving to the Northeastern United States to explore new opportunities.

While it’s certainly a smart move by Murray, her decision to leave beIN SPORTS is another blow to the broadcaster who continues to suffer the financial impact of not being televised by the two biggest distributors in the United States — Comcast and DIRECTV. Murray’s move, which follows on the heels of fellow presenter Kevin Egan deciding to leave, will leave a hole at beIN SPORTS as the sports network is readying to televise the last season of its TV deal with LaLiga for the 2019/20 season.

Prior to joining beIN SPORTS, Murray worked at Real Madrid TV and BoroTV as well as co-hosting the FIFA Ballon d’Or awards alongside Ruud Gullit. At beIN SPORTS, Murray was a familiar face on broadcasts of LaLiga as well as hosting The XTRA and The Locker Room. She quickly established herself as a knowledgeable and charming host, where she regularly worked alongside analysts such as Gary Bailey, Thomas Rongen, Ray Hudson and others.
