Zarah Connolly

Assistant Producer and Presenter at Manchester United

Zarah is one of Manchester’s emerging sports media personalities currently working at Manchester United as a Producer and Presenter on MUTV.

An enthusiastic talent hailing from the local area, Zarah graduated from the University of Salford with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and a Masters degree in PR & Digital Communications, and has already worked with some of the region’s top media organisations and sports clubs including the BBC, Amazon Prime Original, Lancashire Cricket Club and Salford City FC.

Her passion for presenting and production has led to an already exciting career at such a young age, and through personal adversity having been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2018 and battled through multiple operations, all whilst continuing to forge a professional path for herself. She continues to raise awareness of Crohns and Colitis to help others as much as possible, and that sense of responsibility towards community is also shown by Zarah’s voluntary work running local Women’s football team Salford City Lionesses.
