I just saw that there’s a Riad Charara Special on MTV tonight and remembered how much I loved this guy’s shows, specially “El Awwal 3al LBC”.

Here are few things I didn’t know about him though:

Riyad Charara started his career on television as a sports commentator. He was a school in the sports commentary for basketball games and athletics. Sharara was a legend, he commented on more than one Olympic game. He was also a basketball player and a member Al-Ahly Club and Al-Jazira Club.

He enriched the sports library with a set of books and articles. He also worked in the Al-Akhbar newspaper. Riad commented and presented a number Egyptian sport games. [Link]
