Sky Sports news is among 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 all of them it’s been Georgie Thompson who’s been the most famous and successful. Currently residing in the Upminister area of Essex, she’s been working with Sky Sports since 2001. She has a keen comprehension of sports and of the viewers at the same time. Georgie Thompson has been responsible for covering some major sporting events including 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 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 great surprise when she was named amongst the top one hundred 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 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 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 did not continue to turn into a presenter with immediate effect. She had to first spend a couple of months understanding the dynamics of the news channel.
Vicky Gomershall joined the Sky Sports News team in 2005. She had started out 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. 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 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 been a part of Sky Sports News fraternity since 2003. She’s joined the team as a racing expert and went on to becoming the presenter of Good Morning Sports Fans. She has 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.
