I used to prepare questions, but I would only ever get to the first one.

Otakar Černý was born on 10 September 1943 in Kladno. He attended a secondary vocational school of mining, specialising in ironworking, metal rolling and shaping. He later graduated from physics and mathematics at the Faculty of Education in Prague; he taught physics at a vocational school in Kladno for twenty years. But he always wanted to be a sports editor, and so in 1969 he began doing freelance work for Czechoslovak Television. The job included a broad scope of sports events: Davis Cups, world championships in football and hockey, Spartakiads... After 1989 he moved on to the field of political news reporting, he presented the discussion programs called Debata (Debate) and Co tyden dal (Events of the Week). He later worked as the press agent for the Ministry of Health, only to again return to Czech Television, this time as the editor-in-chief of the sports section. In the year 2008-2013, he presented the sports discussion program called Na Slovicko (Just a Chat).
