Libor Bouček will have the honour of hosting this year’s event, which comes live from Pilsen’s New Theatre on 19 June. A well-known television host in the Czech Republic, Bouček is also a native English speaker thanks to one of his parents.
Experience of live events and television is also key, which is why Libor has been chosen. Revently he has worked as part of the hosting team at the European Athletics Championships, Champions Hockey League, and the Davis Cup final. Away from sports, Libor has hosted television shows such as The Voice of CzechoSlovakia, Miss Czech Republic, and the gameshow Wipeout. He has also worked as a dubbing actor for parts in many films, such as Ice Age 2, Kung Fu Panda, and Avengers.
Before starting in television, Libor studied for four years at the Prague Academy of Performing Arts.
