THE Republic Bank Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has launched a region wide talent search to find a presenter for their broadcast of the 2024 season. The CPL talent search is open to all Caribbean residents and the prize for the winner will be a contract to be a pitch side presenter for this year’s event from August 29-October 6.

A media release by CPL on May 13, said, “This ground breaking initiative will be searching for the next sports presenting super star from within the region with training on offer for the winning participant, so that they can hone their talent and use this amazing opportunity as a springboard to a career in broadcasting.”

This is one of the many CPL initiatives that look to develop the next generation of Caribbean talent, but this is the first time that the focus will be on the CPL broadcast which was watched by 853.5 million viewers in 2023.
