Sky Sports news is one of the leading 24 hours 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 in the arena of sport.
Aside from the content of 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 describe 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’s been the most popular and successful. Currently living in the Upminister region of Essex, she has been working together with Sky Sports since 2001. She has a keen understanding of sports and of the viewers at the same time. 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 as well as the US Open too. A sports woman herself, Georgie Thompson has taken part in several international junior tennis championships during her childhood in Queenswood Boarding School.
Georgie Thompsn considers the legendary David Frost her mentor. She co-hosted this program “Greatest Sporting legends” with David Frost that ran for period of eight weeks and culminated in the crowing of Mohammad Ali. It came as no surprise when she was named one of the top 100 Sexiest Women On the planet by the British mens magazine, FHM.
Amongst the latest Sky Sports News presenters is Millie Clode. Drop dead georgeous looks and a winning attitude took this girl from being a quiz show host to a television news presenter as well. Ranked first in the Top ten TV Sports Babes by The Sun, Millie Clode continues to be with Sky Sports News since January 2006. Despite the fact that she was hired by Sky Sports News, she did not go on to turn into a presenter with immediate effect. She had to first spend two months understanding the dynamics on 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 ultimately migrated to becoming a presenter. A self confessed football fan, she actually is a Cheltenham Town follower. Aside from football, cricket is also listed amongst her favorite sports. She’s also said to enjoy athletics and has run for Cheltenham back then 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 has joined the team as a racing expert and proceeded to becoming the presenter of Good Morning Sports Fans. She’s interviewed a number of top racing names such as Sir Alex Ferguson, Mick Channon, Sir Bobby Robson, A.P. McCoy, Pat Eddery amongst a great many others.
