Cherno Jobatey: Perfect Anchorman in Suits, a Pony tail and Sneakers

Sie haben einen Gute-Laune-Animateur gesucht aber einen herzlichen Nachrichtenjunkie gefunden:

A fine suit, a pair of sneakers and a pony tail isn't the traditional picture you'll imagine of a popular TV newscaster but Cherno makes the difference. He revolutionized that stiff image of a perfect journalist and TV presenter. Depending on the main headlines of the day, he would put a smile on your face or bring you to tears without exaggeration when he greets Germany every weekday into another dawn on ZDF Morgenmagazin.
He was born in Berlin to a German mum and a Gambian father. His family had to live on welfare so he learnt at a tender age to work hard and even harder than others if he had to stand out. Cherno Jobatey studied political science at the Free University Berlin.In his fourth semester he won a German Academic Exchange Service grant to study political science and music in Los Angeles for a year, where the boomerang all began with a talk-show he hosted on Jesse Jackson. Today he is one of Germany's best exports in mass journalism. He is also very involved in many projects helping unprivileged kids to realise their dreams...

TV-Presenter Cherno Jobatey is "Germany’s most entertaining alarm clock" FAZ (04/05/06) .

TV-Presenter Cherno Jobatey, "shaped ZDF- Morning News with his irrepressible zest" BUNTE (24/06).

Dave Davis, comedian and cabaret artist was born 1973 in Cologne.He can be compared to a double-edged-sword: kills you with laughter while addressing sensitive relevant issues. Motombo slips into different stereotyped roles displaying great talent and making the society laugh at itself........
