ONTV captures Amr Adib, exclusive rights to Egyptian Premier League

Veteran talk show host Amr Adib nabs EGP 11 mn payday as he joins ONTV. The four-year contract will apparently give him an annual salary of EGP 11 mn and a 15% share of ad revenues from the currently-unnamed show. The program is due on air in September. Ahmed Abou Hashima, chairman of ONTV’s parent company Egyptian Media and CEO of Egyptian Steel, announced the news (if not the salary) yesterday. Adib had said in mid-July he would not be renewing his contract with OSN, saying the relationship with his employer of 20 years had ended amicably, and that he needed “time to rest.” ONTV has also obtained the exclusive rights to Egypt’s Premier League for the next two seasons. Al Masry Al Youm said the agreement was made with Promomedia, another subsidiary of Egyptian Media, and that the matches will air on ONTV starting next season. Whether you love the personalities involved or not, you’ll want to check out the photos from the contract signing on Abou Hashima’s Facebook page.
