Announcer on the radio for match (7)


I believe the answer is:


Here is my best explanation:

'match' is the definition.


'announcer on the radio' is the subsidiary indication.

'announcer' becomes 'compere'.

'on the radio' shows a homophone (sound like).

'compere' is a homophone of 'compare'.

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for compare that I've seen before include "Liken", "Represent as similar; sounds like emcee", "Contrast - liken" and "Look at differences and similarities between (things)".)
