Formula E: Whisper to produce English-language TV programme in 2024
Formula E announced that sports and entertainment production company Whisper will deliver English language live race coverage and programming for season 10. The new partnership will see Whisper produce programming including pre- and post-race shows and live race content. Showcasing the driver personalities, rivalries and storylines in Formula E is supposed to be a key feature of all content.
Whisper will produce a revamped access-all-areas show the night before every race weekend based around the Free Practice 1 session - the first time drivers are on-track - in a more informal, magazine-style format. The company will also produce enhanced coverage of the Free Practice 2 and 3 sessions, and the popular live qualifying session.
A new presenting line-up will be announced soon featuring "big names" from the world of motorsport and entertainment who will join returning former presenters including Nicki Shields, Karun Chandhok, Dario Franchitti, Radzi Chinyanganya, Allan McNish and Tom Brooks, who takes over the position of lead commentator for the entire Season 10.
Delighted to confirm that I will be the lead commentator on Season 10 of @FIAFormulaE. It was a dream to work with the team in Rome and London for S9 and I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to tell you all the stories as they unfold in 2024! pic.twitter.com/ia0f6Qa7Bu— Tom Brooks (@TomBrooksComms) November 1, 2023
Aurora Media Worldwide will continue to create the host broadcast with Gravity Media providing production facilities.
