In the context of television, the reporter is one of the six roles of a television journalist at RTL. The key to this profession is Kai’s responsiveness.

More precisely, he worked with a radio microphone, which at that time was an innovation in the development of domestic television. In fact, he was the only genre reporter among the regular presenters of the show “Boxengasse”. This allows Ebel to be attributed to the same journalist galaxy to which the most famous reporters belonged. So TV presenters who work on the fringes of major sporting events.
