Today’s guest is Sal Masekela. Sal is a professional broadcaster, television host, musician & television producer. He came from the surf/skate/snow world but did a brief detour into mainstream entertainment with gigs on MTV and E! Television. He’s currently a correspondent for Vice Sports and the voice of the Red Bull Signature Series. In today’s episode we discuss Sal’s unique origin story and then Sal weighs-in on the failures of the WSL broadcasters, Slater’s final year on tour, and why Mick Fanning will be the 2017 world champ. Enjoy!
As the host of VICE World of Sports, Sal gets on the field and into the ring through a series of compelling stories at the fringe of culture and politics, across a range of places and people through the one lens that connects them all: sport.
Sal also hosts The Red Bull Signature Series, which includes the most progressive and innovative snowboarding, mountain biking, freestyle motocross, ice cross downhill, skiing and BMX events, showcased on custom courses from the inspiration of the athletes themselves.
ALEKESAM is the musical congruence of Sal Masekela and Sunny Levine. Theirs is a second generation musical union as the sons of longtime musical conspirators, Hugh Masekela and Stewart Levine. ‘All Is Forgiven’ is the first song off their second album (used in the closing of this show), the follow up to their 2012 debut, The Sound Of Alekesam.
