Clare Balding to be face of Channel 4 horse racing

13 August 2012 5:47 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Olympics presenter will also front the station's coverage of London Paralympics

Fresh from her acclaim presenting the Olympics on the BBC, Clare Balding will be the face of Channel 4 horse racing after the broadcaster announced details of its coverage of the Grand National, Derby and Cheltenham Festival for 2013.

Img Sports Media has won the contract to produce Channel 4's coverage, which will begin in January next year.

The commercial broadcaster secured exclusive rights to all terrestrial racing coverage in a four-year deal earlier this year, including the crown jewels of racing such as the Grand National which previously aired on BBC1.

Balding will also present Channel 4's coverage of the London Paralympics, starting on 29 August.

The deal with Channel 4 is non-exclusive so Balding, who has been linked with a presenting role for a new sporting chatshow on the BBC, will still be able to work for the corporation. »
