Sky Sports news is one of the leading 24 hours sports news channels in UK and Ireland. Launched in October 1998, they have come a long way now. Operated by Sky Sports, this channel is known to provide entertaining and informative news from the arena of sport.
Apart from the content in the show, what also holds the viewers attention are definitely the Sky Sports News girls. Beautiful, attractive, confident, intelligent and well informed these are a few adjectives which can be used to describe the female news presenters of Sky Sports News.
Amongst the most popular Sky Sports News girls are Georgie Thompson, Millie Clode, Vicky Gomershall and Alex Hammond. Amongst them all it has been Georgie Thompson who’s been the most popular and successful. Currently residing in the Upminister region of Essex, she’s been working together with Sky Sports since 2001. She’s got a keen comprehension of sports and also the viewers as well. Georgie Thompson has also 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 too. A sports woman herself, Georgie Thompson has participated in several international junior tennis championships during her formative years 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 8 weeks and culminated in the crowing of Mohammad Ali. It came as no great surprise when she was named amongst the top 100 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 as well. Ranked first in the Top ten TV Sports Babes by The Sun, Millie Clode has been with Sky Sports News since January 2006. Even though she was hired by Sky Sports News, she did not continue to turn into a presenter with immediate effect. She had to first spend a couple of months understanding the dynamics on the news channel.
Vicky Gomershall joined the Sky Sports News team in 2005. She had 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 is also said to enjoy athletics and has run for Cheltenham back then when her hero was Daly Thompson. In the 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’s joined the group as a racing expert and went on to becoming the presenter of Good Morning Sports Fans. She’s interviewed several top racing names including Sir Alex Ferguson, Mick Channon, Sir Bobby Robson, A.P. McCoy, Pat Eddery amongst many others.
