Turner announced Wednesday during its upfront presentation in New York City that Kate Abdo will serve as the studio host of Turner and Bleacher Report's coverage of the UEFA Champions League beginning in 2018-19.

Abdo will host studio shows related to the UEFA Champions League on TBS, TNT and truTV.

Abdo said, "I'm over the moon to be involved on this with Turner, whose networks lead the way in creative and engaging sports coverage. I look forward to us doing more of the same with soccer and the most prestigious competition in the game—the Champions League."

Abdo has experience covering significant soccer events for both Fox Sports and Sky Sports, including the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, FIFA Men's and Women's World Cups and English Premier League.

The Manchester native has also twice hosted the FIFA Ballon d'Or Awards.

She will anchor Turner's coverage when it becomes the exclusive media partner in the United States for the UEFA Champions League in August.
