Georgie thompson sky sports news report anchor gal

Georgie Thompson is considered to be just about the most popular anchorwoman of sky sports news. Born in September 1977, she presents the 3-7pm slot on Sky Sports News.

A sportswoman herself, she has represented England in international junior tennis championships when she was studying in Queenswood Boarding School. Having finished her education with the University of Leeds where she studied Broadcast Journalism, Georgie Thompson started her career as a production assistant for GMTV.

She moved from GMTV in January 2001 to Sky Sports News and has now since covered many sporting events including the US Open Tennis Championships, A1 Grand Prix, Grand Prix Masters, Speedway World Cup, Americas Cup as well as the Race of Champions. She actually is also a keen surfer plus an ardent Fullham F.C. supporter.

Her extremely busy schedule doesn’t permit her to spend a lot of time on the tennis courts now. But when she does find the time to hit the courts, she does compete however its just with herself. Having played at a competitive level for nearly 12 times in a year in past times, she gets disappointed if she does not level with her standards.

Voted among the top 100 Sexisiest Women in the Word by the British Mens Magazine, FHM, Georgie Thompson had modest beginnings. The daughter of a property developer, the importance of work ethics and hard work were drilled into her at a very early age. Additionally, it ingrained in her the significance of investing in property and subsequently of climbing up the property ladder.

She’s the proud owner of a three bedroom terrace house in Chelsea. Though she feels that this property is considerably large as she is not married and doesn’t have any kids, it has been a huge gain for her from a purely investment viewpoint. Initially costing around 500,000 pounds during the time of purchase, the property is currently valued at almost 800,000.

Georgie Thompson doesn’t consider herself for being really good with money and making it work. Following her fathers advice, she lets her financial advisors make all the crucial decisions for her. Having focused on property for a long time, she has now thought about other investment options too keeping her future under consideration. Her financial advisors have shown her the need of keeping money aside for major future expenses such as education expenses for when she has children.

This lady has also invested in an extensive insurance plan that covers her for critical illness and BUPA healthcare. Although she finds critical illness cover quite expensive, she realized that with a family history of cancer she did not want to put a price on her health.

Although she loves earning money, handling money and number crunching are not a favorite pastime with her. On the insistence of Sky News she put in place a private limited company for herself a few years back. Along with invoicing Sky News for her contract she makes sure there is a steady stream of revenue arriving in from other sources such as event hosting, writing and submitting articles and corporate speaking.
