094 Kaja Snare: Growing Chess's Popularity With Better Live Coverage

Jun 11, 2024

Kaja Snare, a pro chess broadcaster, has been leading chess into a new and more accessible era of live coverage.

Gone are the days of top-level chess being watchable only for the most dedicated to the game.

With her co-hosts, GM David Howell and WGM Jovanaka Houska, Kaja anchored one of the most popular live chess broadcasts our sport has ever seen.

And for good reason…

At Chess24, Kaja was part of a team that worked hard to make chess more accessible and more exciting for the general public with its live coverage.

In our chat, Kaja shares how they helped move chess into an era with greater reach and relatability.

We also discuss: 

  • Hilarious stories Kaja shares from her interviews with Hikaru, Magnus, and Ivanchuk. 
  • How Kaja went from covering sports to focusing exclusively on chess - even as someone who originally knew very little about the game.
  • A behind-the-scenes look at how the now-famous Chess24 broadcast team was assembled with Kaja, David, and Jovanaka.
