The article in The Times today by Kevin Eason contains a lot of information and details which I shall cover in a blog post probably tomorrow as to the validity of those details. One thing I do spot though is that in the bullet points alongside the article is that Mark Pougatch is noted as a contender for the BBC F1 presenter role to replace Jake Humphrey.
It is the first time I have seen Pougatch linked to the role, so I thought it was worth creating a blog as I have not previously mentioned him. Pougatch, as the article mentions is an experienced broadcaster and veteran, having presented several sports strands including 5 Live Sport on the radio, Football Focus and ITV4’s coverage of the African Cup of Nations.
The article also notes Lee McKenzie as expected, as well as Chris Evans, although the latter appeared to pull out of the running last weekend. In any case, Pougatch appears to be a serious contender to replace Humphrey.
