Becoming an award-winning sports Journalist feat. Junia Stainbank

For this episode we were joined in studio by accomplished multiple award-winning sports journalist Junia Stainbank, who spoke to SportsLIVE podcast host Sbu Mjikeliso on what it takes to become a top sports journalist.

Stainbank won a hat-trick of SAB Sports Media Awards television sports journalist-of-the-year awards in his career plus a multitude of other accolade, which saw him grab the honor of covering the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

For those who have been intrigued by the art of sports journalism, this is a conversation not to be missed. Sbu Mjikeliso chimed in on his experiences, including the highlight of having authored the first biography of an African black Springbok, Being A Blacks Springbok: The Thando Manana Story.

We also spoke briefly to Springbok legend Breyton Paulse about the impact Springbok winger Cheslin Kolbe has had on South African rugby as well as the team's performances at the Rugby World Cup that is currently on the go.

Sbu also gives his views on the Makazole Mapimpi online controversy and the so-called "racist" video following South Africa's win over Italy and the "Bomb Squad" issue.
