I did not see this coming although the former head of the public relations unit of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG), Rev. George Larbi, a journalist friend from Koforidua back in the 2000s, had mentioned it to me in conversations.

That I should look at what contribution I could make to our church’s television network, especially from the sports angle. I pondered the idea, but we did not return to the subject until late last year. A call from the General Manager of PCG TV, Daniel Pabby, would drag the two of us to the table to discuss a proposal.

And I have liked the professionalism and patience of Daniel Pabby. I have also admired the arduous work of the personnel he supervises. Through typical presbyterian diligence, we have over the last six months, curated a sports chat show where I will be hosting the news makers in the country’s sports.

Dirven by a passion for sports journalism, leadership, governance and God’s work, Sports Time with Jerome on PCG TV will focus on timely and relevant sports issues – drawing the knowledge and experiences of the key actors in the sports arena. We would speak to the athletes, coaches, administrators, fans, and journalists alike on issues of the time.

Sports Time with Jerome on PCG TV is on Saturdays at 1:30pm. The repeat broadcast will be at 8pm on Mondays. We have shot three episodes so far. The maiden show comes off this weekend. The concept is to reach viewers with sports content and the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Stay tuned, watch critically, and share your feedback with me and the team.

Meanwhile, I am gratified by the interests shown by colleagues and of course the guests we have interviewed. I am also thankful to Rev. George Larbi, (now the Minister in charge of Logos Congregation, Achimota, Accra); the General Manager of the network, Daniel Pabby; and without doubt, our church for the confidence reposed me.

With the strength God gives me and the crew, we will do a decent job (Philippians 4:13).
