Sports Journalist, Christopher Opoku will be laid to rest today in his hometown, Domeabra in the Ashanti region.

The funeral of the late Sports broadcaster will be held at the poolside of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) after which his remains will be conveyed to his hometown for burial.

The remains of the late sports broadcaster, Christopher Opoku arrived in his home country last Sunday from the UK where he was undergoing treatment for his illness.

Christopher Opoku, who until his trip abroad for treatment, was news editor at Citi FM has worked in the media for more than fifteen years.

He started as the host of a gospel show on Luv Fm, a station based in Kumasi where he was a student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

Chris then evolved to become one of Ghana’s known sports journalists. He worked with Asempa FM and Power FM before it was re-branded Starr FM.

He was named Best Football Commentator and Best Football Journalist (PLB) in 2008 and 2009.

Aside his work as a sports broadcaster, he had a strong passion for music, and he was heavily involved in running the music department of his church.

He will be remembered as a dedicated, passionate and very lively person and he will be missed by all who knew him.
