SUPERSPORT is calling on freelance cameramen, audio personnel and commentators to apply for the positions and be part of the Zambian Super League that kicks off on March 15.
MultiChoice Zambia head of public relations Marlon Kananda said the invitation was being done in a bid to empower local Zambians with the production of the Zambian Super league games.
SuperSport in partnership with Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) have been producing and broadcasting the Zambian Super League for over five years.
Kananda said in a statement yesterday that inviting freelance cameramen and commentators will give SuperSport an opportunity to broaden the human resources when it comes to beefing up the three areas mentioned.
“We are more than excited to add in more locals in the production of games as it will increase the number of games being produced and televised. Last year we produced and televised over 75 matches, an average of two games every weekend during the season.
“This partnership with the audio personnel, commentators, freelance cameramen and women will add value to Zambian football,” Kananda said.
He said locals would be trained to be able to produce games of the quality of SuperSport coverage and expressed confidence that Zambians will be able to do this in a year’s time.
Kananda said bringing in locals would help generate more productions and also help SuperSport and MultiChoice work with local producers to produce more appealing stuff for the viewers.
“Zambia has great appetite for high-quality viewing and we intend to deliver. We hope that this reaffirms our commitment and confidence we have in Zambia and the people,” he said.
“As SuperSport we intend to start the production and Live Broadcast of the Zambian Super League games from week one in Lusaka and we hope 2014 will be another exciting year. so if you are a cameraman or woman.
“If you feel you can do commentary or audio, please bring in your CV before March 31st and drop it at any of the MultiChoice Offices in Lusaka,” he said.
Kananda said SuperSport also invites people from the Copperbelt to drop their application at the MultiChoice Kitwe offices.
He said MultiChoice’s unmatched track record of almost two decades in Pay TV and unrivalled dedication to this market makes it the leading pay media destination any time anywhere in Zambia.
“Over the years through our channels, we have continued to invest in local content production – we have always been and still are dedicated to serving the Zambian people with the best sport, movies and entertainment,” he said.
