Vasily Utkin - sports commentator and shocking showman
Who is Vasily Utkin, many people know. Some learn his voice while watching a football match, others are looking forward to the release of the program, in which this journalist will take part. There are also such spectators who frankly do not like him for his harshness and unrestrained cues during the interview.
But the fact that Vasily Utkin is a popular person is difficult to challenge. How did this outrageous showman become famous?
Childhood and Youth
He was born in 1972, on March 6, in Balashikha, in a very intelligent family. His father is a physicist who has devoted his whole life to science. My mother worked as a doctor. He has an older sister.
Vasily liked to study the humanities. He was happy to write essays, he liked to reason and discuss in literature lessons.
After school I entered the Moscow Pedagogical UniversityUniversity at the Department of Philology Vasily Utkin. The student's height was almost 2 meters. He was always in the spotlight. However, he did not become a graduate, having dropped his studies on the 4th course, after the unsuccessful surrender of the session.
In 1992, by a happy accident, Utkin becameeditor of a political program called the Politburo. This was the author's project of A. Politkovskiy. For the young Vasily, working in a team of professionals was a wonderful start. He learned a lot, observing how the participants of the discussions on the set are behaving. A year later the project was closed. Two more years Vasily Utkin worked in the company "VID", but in 1994 decided to switch to a new channel - NTV. He was taken to the position of the leading sports program dedicated to football. He told viewers about football matches, interviewed players and their coaches. One of the first reports the journalist spent while on the game of the Tbilisi "Dynamo" and the Moscow "Torpedo".
In 1997, after a scandalous plot aboutcoach O. Rumyantsev, Utkin began to ignore the players of FC "Spartak". The journalist spoke incorrectly about their coach. And this incident was not ignored.
Soon his program was closed, citing the rating's fall and fatigue of the leader himself. Sports commentator Vasily Utkin was forced to look for a new job.
Activities in new directions
In 2000, the journalist was attacked. In the morning on the way to work on Utkin a man came and stuck a screwdriver in his back. Sharpening did not affect the organs, but only injured the muscle. Who hit the journalist, they did not find out.
At this time he worked as a commentator of the World and European Championships, wrote articles for "Soviet Sport". In 2004, he was recognized as the best in his field and received the TEFI television award.
Vasily Utkin decided to develop in newdirections. He was interested in proposals to work in entertainment programs. He was the host of many projects on different channels, among which the show "The Famine", the project "Wall to the wall", the program "Earth-Air". Later, he lit up in the television game "What? Where? When? ", And also was one of the jury members in the KVN.
Vasily Utkin tried his hand at the cinema. In the film "Election Day" he appeared as a candidate for governors. In 2010, he was invited to appear in another film called "What Men Talk About." The film is comedic and philosophical at the same time.
Not yet married Vasily Utkin. His personal life does not add up. In 2003, he took part in the program "The School of Slander". During the filming I met a wonderful girl and started to look after her. The journalist even planned to make her an offer. But the romantic meetings ended with the beloved soon announcing that they had to part.
Vasiliy Utkin experienced a long break. Personal life did not work out after. He never found his one and did not bind himself to anyone with marriage. As it turned out, unhappy love is not a catastrophe. In one interview, the journalist confessed that he ceased to suffer immediately after the robbery of the apartment. The fact that his cross was stolen, upset much more. But at that moment he realized that a new stage of life was beginning.
Conflict with Tina Kandelaki
The fact that Vasily Utkin is one of the most scandalousshowmen, is known for a long time. He never looked for correct words and expressed far from flattering to his opponent all that he thought. So it happened this time.
In 2015 another scandal erupted with his participation. And the dispute arose with Tina Kandelaki almost immediately after her appointment as the general producer of the Match-TV channel. Conflict flared swiftly. In the end, after exchanging ungracious comments, Utkin announced that he was leaving the channel and believed that it was humiliating for him to work under Tina's direction.
