Pangeran Siahaan is a writer and TV presenter, based in Jakarta, Indonesia. His works mainly cover, but not limited to, football and politics. He worked for Press Associations as a local correspondent and went on to edit Super Soccer and Bolatotal. He was a regular contributor for The Jakarta Globe and Berita Satu. He ran a column on Detik. In 2015, he joined Pandit Football and became a member of its board of directors.
Pangeran kickstarted his broadcasting career by becoming a commentator on French Ligue 1 on O Channel. He followed it up by being a Spanish La Liga pundit on Trans TV. He got his first anchor role at TVRI as Italian Serie A presenter. He had a brief stint as pundit for ESPN FC on NET.
Right now he presents live broadcast and football programs on beIN SPORTS Indonesia where he anchors the flagship Premier League shows, Super Sabtu and Minggu Megah. Pangeran has been nominated once in Asian TV Awards as one of the best sports presenters.
His book, The Big Pang Theory, was published by a major national publisher, Elex Media, in 2014.
Outside football, Pangeran is known for his enthusiasm in politics and social activism. He co-created Provocative Proactive TV show, a satirical political talkshow, that was aired for 1,5 years on Metro TV, in which he also acted as its chief writer. He helped founding Ayo Vote, an independent movement to encourage young people to participate in general election.
In 2017, the creative concept of Asumsi got picked up by Metro TV and resulted in a new political TV programme, OpiniON, a casual take on current affairs and political whatnot in which Pangeran and Iman are the hosts.
This platform, however, was created to shelter none of the aforementioned topics. There will be stories, human interests, pop culture, and probably a bit politics. After all, he's an opinionated person with too many interests....
