The videos on the channel are presented by boxer Zeina Nassar and sports journalist Magdalena Austermann. This TikTok transformation of "sportstudio" is being conducted by the pan-European studio and talent agency Divimove.

"We see TikTok as an opportunity to reach young users with breaking news and in-depth sports content and thus present the sportstudio brand to a new target group. 2021 is an important year for the sports community. The upcoming UEFA EURO and the Summer Olympics are the ideal time for this experiment", ZDF’s Head of Sports, Thomas Fuhrmann says.

To do this, we found two great hosts who perfectly fit to our brand and who belong to the young target group themselves",explains Fabian Swidrak, Head of Social Media at ZDF's sports editorial department.
