Ashraf Garda - new face of Special Assignment
| Friday 1 April 2011 13:54
SABC3’S Multi Award – Winning Investigative Documentary programme, Special Assignment moves to a new timeslot of Wednesdays at 21:30 from April 6.
The captivating show not only takes up a new spot but it also boasts a new Special Assignment presenter - Ashraf Garda.
Ashraf has accomplished a series of "special assignments", from his presence on SAfm radio where he can be heard hosting current affairs talk shows to presenting a Media and Marketing show and anchoring sport. And that's not all; Ashraf was used regularly on CNN, Al Jazeera and CBC Canada during the 2010 FIFA World Cup where he provided analysis on Brand SA, the socio-political state of the country and Africa's best hope. In a typical week he could be putting questions to Moeletsi Mbeki, Joe Thloloe, Makhaya Ntini, MCing a business function or judging an Agency Awards event - he is that versatile!
Ashraf is thrilled at being able to stamp his mark on the Special Assignment show. And what is that mark? He's on-air persona has been described as authoritative, objective, balanced, driven, pacy and blunt and to top it all, he asks great questions!
Ashraf is a skilled interviewer and accomplished MC. He can also be described as a social networking activist. He is driven by his mantra "Never Bored, Never Boring" which means expectations will be raised in the new Special Assignment.
