Johannesburg - Leading cricket broadcaster HD Ackerman will shortly end his innings at SuperSport, the sports broadcaster confirmed on Tuesday.
The former international will be emigrating to Australia in September, where he has been appointed Director of Coaching at Guildford Grammar, a leading private school in Perth that boasts Tom Moody and Brendon Julian as old boys.
“Leaving SuperSport is a huge regret,” said Ackerman.
“Everyone has been so good to me and helped me grow as a broadcaster.”
Ackerman’s highlights include working with illustrious cricketers-cum-broadcasters like Allan Border, Michael Holding and Kepler Wessels.
“Every single Test match I worked on was a highlight. Being on air with Robin Jackman when Jacques Kallis got his first double ton and then calling live Temba Bavuma’s century at Newlands are among my most special moments.”
He said the possibility remains that he will be used on a freelance basis from time to time.
Ackerman leaves for Australia in September.
