Prolific sports commentator and reporter John Inverdale is one of the most experianced and accomplished presenters in the industry today.
His first job with network radio was in 1986 as a sports reporter for BBC Radio 2 and a news reporter for Radio 4 on ‘Today.’ In 1988 he became presenter of ‘Sport on 2’ which he hosted for six years until the advent of Radio 5 Live when he moved to a daily news programme. John continues to present for Radio 5 Live on all top sporting events.
His television career began with BSB in 1990 as presenter of rugby and football, and on the BBC he fronted ‘Rugby Special’ from 1994 until 1997. He hosted his own BBC1 sports chat show ‘Onside’ for seven series, and is a regular presenter on Grandstand and other sports programmes including Wimbledon.
He was part of the multi-award winning team that covered the Sydney Olympics in 2000. He has also hosted ‘ The World’s Strongest Man’ for the past five years, which regularly attracts audiences in excess of 10 million, and fronted a 3-part investigation into the history of gambling for BBC1. The last few years have seen John once again presenting some of the world’s largest sporting events, including the Olympics and the Rugby World Cup.
