Georgie Thompson

Georgie is the face of Sky Sports News, anchoring the flagship programmes Afternoon Report and Evening Update from 3-7pm Tuesday to Friday.

She is also a regular panelist alongside Freddie Flintoff, Jamie Redknapp and John Bishop on Sky 1’s “A League of Their Own” presented by James Corden. A mixture of sports and comedy, the show is due to return for a second series later this year.

 

Her other roles with Sky Sports have seen her host the A1 Grand Prix motor racing series, US Open tennis, Speedway World Cup and other live outside broadcasts including The Goodwood Festival of Speed, Superset Tennis and the Race of Champions at Wembley.

Georgie also voices Sky Sport’s Premier League Years series and all ‘end of programme’ sign offs.

After graduating from Leeds University with a 2:1 in Broadcast Journalism, Georgie worked as a runner at GMTV before becoming a researcher on Entertainment Today. A chance opportunity to front a web broadcast from the Cannes Film Festival in 2000 led to a screen test at Sky Sports where she has gone from strength to strength since first appearing on screen in June 2001.

Georgie's work extends beyond Sky into televised tournaments and celebrity fundraisers. She also has her own "question and answer" page on the TV station's website and contributes to a range of newspapers and magazines.

Georgie is a popular choice for presenting at awards ceremonies and for making personal appearances
