Sky Sports news is among the leading Round the clock 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 of the show, what also props up 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 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’s been Georgie Thompson who has been the most famous and successful. Currently living in the Upminister region of Essex, she has been working with Sky Sports since 2001. She’s got a keen understanding of sports and also the viewers as well. Georgie Thompson has also been in charge of covering some major sports activities such as 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 this program “Greatest Sporting legends” with David Frost that ran for duration of 8 weeks and culminated in the crowing of Mohammad Ali. It came as no great surprise when she was named one of the top 100 Sexiest Women On the planet 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 continue to become a presenter with immediate effect. She had to first spend a couple of 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 around the North West and ultimately migrated to being 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 is 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’s joined the team as a racing expert and proceeded 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.
