About Ron Chakraborty

Ron Chakraborty Ron Chakraborty | 14:39 UK time, Thursday, 10 May 2007

I'm one of the Assistant Editors in TV Sport.

I joined the BBC in 1998 as a trainee assistant producer, having worked the previous four years in newspapers.
I was assistant editor of Grandstand from 2002 to its end in 2007, where my job was to co-ordinate the sports on Saturday and Sunday afternoons from the gallery.

Nowadays I do the same job on the separate elements that Grandstand has left behind, so I may turn up on anything from Six Nations Rugby and the NFL to the highlights programmes at Wimbledon and the Open golf.

I also act as BBC liaison with the independent companies that produce our coverage of snooker, darts, bowls and cricket.

With that bunch on my CV, it's no surprise that you'll usually get an opinion from me on most sporting topics, but Cornish rugby, Indian cricket, Leeds United and the New York Jets would probably incite the most passion.
