It’s been a whopping 27 years now since the Legendary Ghanaian Sports Journalist Kwabena Yeboah started hosting the infamous Sports Highlights show on GTV.
Sports Highlights is arguably the longest Television program to run on a Ghanaian TV station to date. He started the TV show in February 1994, marking yesterday, February 27, 2021, as the 27th year.
Around the mid-nineties where there was no influx of satellite Television in Ghana, the directors, and producers at GTV came up with a brainchild to introduce a sports program on TV where most of the European and local football games played on the weekend will be shown on Monday night in one program which was named Sports Highlights.
Young and very energetic Kwabena Yeboah had the nod to host the program which later became the talk of town.
Kwabena, the legendary football commentator made the show great with his broad knowledge of the game and his unique style of presentation.
After so many years, he still anchors the program on GTV. Many Ghanaians and sports lovers across the globe took to social media to celebrate the astute sports journalist who has nurtured many great journalists in Ghana and beyond.
Apart from his unique abilities in presenting and analyzing sports, Kwabena is also one of, if not the greatest sportswriter Ghana has ever had.
He was the chief editor of the once top newspaper in Africa, called the Africa sports newspaper.
