Foxtel has announced former FOX Footy presenter Tiffany Cherry will join Olympian Matt Shirvington as part of its coverage of the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games in February 2010.
Cherry returns from an 18 month stint in the US as a host of ESPN’s SportsCentre covering Wimbledon, the US Superbowl, NBA finals, the US Golf and Tennis Opens and the English Premier League.
She joins former Olympian Matt Shirvington as presenter for the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games and the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Foxtel’s Director of Sports and Olympic Games, Peter Campbell, said: “We are thrilled to have Tiffany and Matt on board.”
“Matt’s impressive athletic career enables him to tap in to the mindset of the competitors taking part in the events. He will bring a unique perspective to our coverage, the most comprehensive in Australian television history.”
“Tiffany’s extensive experience reporting and presenting both here in Australia and overseas sets her up very well for an event such as the Olympic Winter Games. It is great to have her home again.”
Foxtel will provide 4 HD and 4 SD channels on the Winter Olympics with a dedicated Vancouver-based studio next February.
