Georgie was a central figure on Sky Sports for 11 years, first joining the network in January 2001. She was a huge hit with sports betting fans on Sky Sports News, earning a loyal audience with her Afternoon Report segment. In 2011, Georgie made the switch from Sky Sports News presenter to take on a leading role on Sky Sports F1. Alongside Ted Kravitz, Georgie presented The F1 Show on a Friday night throughout the 2012 season but opted to leave Sky Sports for Fox Sports in 2013.
Charlotte joined the female Sky Sports News presenters team in 2009, blossoming into one of the most consistent anchors on the channel. She has been involved in various celebrity reality programmes over the years, reaching the semi-finals of Splash and presenting Sky Sports quiz show Take It Like A Fan. Now happily married to former Wales manager Chris Coleman, Charlotte is no longer one of the hottest Sky Sports News presenters but she is fondly remembered by fans.
Millie joined the channel in January 2006 and she quickly became one of the most popular female Sky Sports News presenters on television. By 2009, Millie was earning a reputation away from Sky Sports, co-hosting The Colour Of Money alongside Chris Tarrant and presenting The Poker Channel on Channel 4.

Kate brought huge personality to the female Sky Sports News presenters team during her time on the channel – she always brought a massive smile to the role. Prior to joining Sky Sports News, Kate worked for SKY Deutschland and is fluent in four languages; English, French, German and Spanish. Kate was asked to host the Ballon d’Or ceremony in 2015 after impressing organisers the previous year when she put her multilingual skills to use talking to players.
Natalie joined Sky Sports as a member of the production team in 2000 and she soared to popularity when appearing as a Soccerette on Soccer AM later that year. One of the first names to spring to mind when thinking of female Sky Sports News presenters, Natalie was with the company for 18 years before her departure. Natalie is now a radio presenter for Talksport and she started presenting a podcast for The Times ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
