Sky Sports news is one of the leading Round the clock sports news channels in UK and Ireland. Launched in October 1998, they’ve already 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 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 which can be used to describe the feminine 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 living in the Upminister area of Essex, she has been working together with Sky Sports since 2001. She has a passionate comprehension of sports and of 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 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 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 did not go on to become 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’d started off a reporter covering events around the North West and ultimately migrated to being a presenter. A self confessed football fan, she actually is a Cheltenham Town follower. Apart 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 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’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.
