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 in the arena of sport.
Aside 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 that can be used to explain the feminine news presenters of Sky Sports News.
One of 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 has been the most popular and successful. Currently living in the Upminister area of Essex, she’s been working together with Sky Sports since 2001. She’s got a keen comprehension of sports and of the viewers as well. Georgie Thompson has also been responsible for covering some major sports activities such as Grand Prix Masters, A1Grand Prix, and Race of the Champions, Speedway World Cup and 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 this program “Greatest Sporting legends” with David Frost that ran for duration of eight weeks and culminated in the crowing of Mohammad Ali. It came as no surprise when she was named amongst 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 has been with Sky Sports News since January 2006. Despite the fact that 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 on the news channel.
Vicky Gomershall joined the Sky Sports News team in 2005. She had started off a reporter covering events round the North West and ultimately migrated to being 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 including Sir Alex Ferguson, Mick Channon, Sir Bobby Robson, A.P. McCoy, Pat Eddery amongst a great many others.
