Sky Sports news is one of the leading Round the clock sports news channels in UK and Ireland. Launched in October 1998, they have made great strides now. Operated by Sky Sports, this channel is known to provide entertaining and informative news from the arena of sport.
Aside from the content in the show, what also props up viewers attention are definitely the Sky Sports News girls. Beautiful, attractive, confident, intelligent and well informed these are a few adjectives that can be used to explain the female news presenters of Sky Sports News.
One of the most popular Sky Sports News girls are Georgie Thompson, Millie Clode, Vicky Gomershall and Alex Hammond. Amongst all of them it’s been Georgie Thompson who has been the most popular and successful. Currently residing in the Upminister area of Essex, she has been working together with Sky Sports since 2001. She has a keen understanding of sports and also the viewers as well. Georgie Thompson has also been in charge of covering some major sporting events such as Grand Prix Masters, A1Grand Prix, and Race of the Champions, Speedway World Cup and the US Open as well. A sports woman herself, Georgie Thompson has participated in several international junior tennis championships during her youth in Queenswood Boarding School.
Georgie Thompsn considers the legendary David Frost her mentor. She co-hosted the program “Greatest Sporting legends” with David Frost that ran for duration of eight weeks and culminated in the crowing of Mohammad Ali. It came as no great surprise when she was named one of the top one hundred Sexiest Women In the World by the British mens magazine, FHM.
One of the latest Sky Sports News presenters is Millie Clode. Drop dead georgeous looks along with a winning attitude took this girl from being a quiz show host to a television news presenter as well. Ranked first in the Top 10 TV Sports Babes by The Sun, Millie Clode continues to be with Sky Sports News since January 2006. Even though she was hired by Sky Sports News, she didn’t go on to turn into a presenter with immediate effect. She had to first spend two months understanding the dynamics of the news channel.
Vicky Gomershall joined the Sky Sports News team in 2005. She’d started out a reporter covering events around the North West and finally migrated to being a presenter. A self confessed football fan, she is a Cheltenham Town follower. Apart from football, cricket is also listed amongst her favorite sports. She is also thought to enjoy athletics and has run for Cheltenham during the time when her hero was Daly Thompson. In her earlier years Vicky Gomershall played with the Fulham Ladies and still keeps that interest alive by playing 5-a-side-football.
Alex Hammond has been a part of Sky Sports News fraternity since 2003. She’s joined the group as a racing expert and proceeded to becoming the presenter of Good Morning Sports Fans. She has interviewed several top racing names such as Sir Alex Ferguson, Mick Channon, Sir Bobby Robson, A.P. McCoy, Pat Eddery amongst a great many others.
