Karthi Gnanasegaram presents Perfect Pitch, the four-part series celebrating the worlds of classical music and sport. She can also be heard from time to time on Classic FM standing in for the other presenters.
Karthi Gnanasegaram is already a recognisable face to millions of people thanks to her role as a TV sports presenter – and now, she’s a regular voice on Classic FM, too.
Karthi’s two passions in life are sport and classical music; she played both the violin and piano to Grade 8, and toured Europe playing the violin with various West Midlands orchestras during her school holidays. As a student, Karthi represented the University of Cambridge in tennis and badminton, as well as playing in various orchestras, and she would always listen to Classic FM to calm her revision nerves.
Over the last decade, Karthi has worked as a reporter on Match of the Day, Football Focus, the Olympics, the French Open and the Ashes. She also presents the news for Premier League Television, and has previously fronted sports programmes for Sky News, Channel 5 and Al Jazeera.
