Sky Sports news is among the leading 24 hours sports news channels in UK and Ireland. Launched in October 1998, they’ve already 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 holds the viewers attention are the Sky Sports News girls. Beautiful, attractive, confident, intelligent and well informed these are a few adjectives that can be used to explain the feminine 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 famous and successful. Currently living in the Upminister area of Essex, she’s been working together with Sky Sports since 2001. She’s got a passionate understanding of sports and also the viewers at the same time. Georgie Thompson has been in charge of covering some major sports activities including Grand Prix Masters, A1Grand Prix, and Race of the Champions, Speedway World Cup as well as the US Open as well. 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 the 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 great surprise when she was named amongst the top one hundred Sexiest Women In the World 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 too. Ranked first in the Top ten 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 learning the dynamics on the news channel.
Vicky Gomershall joined the Sky Sports News team in 2005. She had started off a reporter covering events round the North West and finally migrated to becoming a presenter. A self confessed football fan, she 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 become 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 including Sir Alex Ferguson, Mick Channon, Sir Bobby Robson, A.P. McCoy, Pat Eddery amongst many others.
