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 world of sport.
Apart from the content of the content of the show, what also holds the viewers attention are the Sky Sports News girls. Beautiful, attractive, confident, intelligent and well informed…these are only a few adjectives that 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 has been Georgie Thompson who has been the most popular and successful. Currently living in the Upminister area of Essex, she has been working with Sky Sports since 2001. She has a keen understanding of sports and of the viewers as well. Georgie Thompson has also been responsible for covering some major sporting events such as 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 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 the program “Greatest Sporting legends” with David Frost, a program that ran for a period of eight weeks and culminated in the crowing of Mohammad Ali. It came as no surprise when she was named amongst the top one hundred Sexiest Women In the World by the British men’s magazine, FHM.
Amongst the latest to join the 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 has been with Sky Sports News since January 2006. Even though she was hired by Sky Sports News, she did not go on to become 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 off a reporter covering events around 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 said to enjoy athletics and has run for Cheltenham during the time when her hero was Daly Thompson. In her earlier years Vicky Gomershall used to play with 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 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 many others.
