Local celebrities Fazura and Marion Caunter launch Malaysia’s brand new sports entertainment programme on STAR Sports
Glittering sports celebrities, the hottest gossip, and sizzling star profiles make the perfect recipe to serve up the spicy side of sports on ESPN STAR Sport’s newest sports entertainment programme, MyEG Xtra Time when it launches this Thursday, 10 December at 10.30pm.
Make a date with the very popular and glamorous presenters Fazura and Marion Caunter on STAR Sports and get a closer look inside the extravagant lifestyles of favourite your sports celebrities and all the drama that follows them.
The weekly magazine show aims to bring viewers the lowdown on all things fun and fabulous from the world of sports in 30 minutes of pure guilty pleasure, covering all the latest news surrounding famous sports personalities, with their over-the-top shenanigans, gossip about WAGs of famous sportsmen as well as the latest fashion trends and faux pas of the world’s biggest sports names.
MyEG Xtra Time will be presented with plenty of style, sass and spunk, and viewers in Malaysia would be familiar with the vivacious duo as former music VJs. Fazura is one of Malaysia’s most promising actresses before becoming a VJ with MTV Asia, whilst Penang-born Caunter became known for her work with Channel [V].
Said Fazura, ‘Sports is often synonymous with male viewers, but with MyEG Xtra Time’s new concept of sports entertainment, I’m sure we’ll have lots of ladies tuning in as well! Men love sports, but I’m sure they’ll stay glued to the screens with the latest news outside the sports arena – and I’m certain lots of ladies will tune in as well with the gossipy nature of the show!”
Her new co-host Caunter added: “The concept of MyEG Xtra Time is the first-of-its-kind in Malaysia and I’m looking forward to delivering all the latest sports entertainment news, fashion nuggets, updates on the dating scene of sports celebrities, and all the off-the-field drama! I think the experience that we have as VJs will definitely add an entertaining spin to the show.”
“Sports are often associated with football and men,” said TS Wong, Managing Director, MyEG Services Berhad. “With its blend of sports entertainment news and fashion, MyEG Xtra Time is the perfect platform for us to reach out to the female demographic in a lively and entertaining format. With Fazura and Marion onboard as presenters, we are confident that this great collaboration between MyEG and ESPN STAR Sports will achieve that goal.”
Said Hasnan Hassan, Director, Business Development, Advertising Sales, ESPN STAR Sports, “ESPN STAR Sports is constantly looking to offer innovative sports entertainment programmes that engages our viewers and we are delighted to have MyEG on board as the title sponsor. We’re pleased to offer a show that is dramatically unique in its style and format, while helping MyEG to meet both its corporate and brand objectives, and we look forward to more synergistic partnerships in the future.”
