ABC unlocks The Trophy Room

As Australia looks towards summer, the ABC is hoping to tap into the nation's passion for sun, sports and fun with a new weekly sports quiz, aptly titled The Trophy Room.

Involving celebs, comedians and entertainers, the quiz will aim to offer a broad appeal in order to reach both sports and non-sports fans alike.

The ABC will co-produce the program with Granada Media Australia, using an original concept from the production company.

The host and team captains for the show are yet to be revealed.

Continuing ABC's new hash of sports broadcasts, the broadcaster has announced the addition of sports presenter Stephanie Brantz to the channel, fresh from a long spell at Nine and SBS.

She will be the new anchor for a variety of sporting events across ABC channels, including Women's National Football League, cricket, golf and basketball.

Brantz said of the move: "To be joining the national broadcaster to bring such high quality sport to fans around the country will be a real privilege.

"Australian women's sport is in a fantastic place right now and I can't wait to be a part of it on ABC TV -- bring it on!"

The Trophy Room premieres 8:30pm Wednesday, December 8 on ABC1.
