Sky Sports’ Laura Woods is one of the most popular sports reporters on television at the moment. She has made a career for herself in a difficult sector of broadcast television and she’s still just getting started.
Who is Laura Woods?
Laura Woods is a sports reporter for Sky Sports and also hosts TalkSPORT’s breakfast show. She joined Sky Sports in 2009, initially as a runner, and has made her way to the top after studying journalism at Kingston University. She took the big job at talkSPORT in March this year.
Her energy, wit and charm have seen her present Super Sunday and live Premier League fixtures for Sky. She has also scooped The Times Sportswoman Of The Year and London Football awards and discussed current issues in The Debate.
She has interviewed many football stars including David Beckham, Harry Kane and Paul Pogba.
What is Laura Woods’ age?
The Sky sports presenter is 33 years old and was born on 2 July 1987.
Who is Laura Woods’ boyfriend?
Not much is known about the presenter’s love life, as she likes to keep private matters, well, private. However, she’s known to set the record straight about mistaken “celeb bios” of her popping up online:
Is she on Instagram?
Yes, Laura is active on Instagram, where you can find her using the handle @laurawoodsy. She posts updates from her broadcasts, together with everyday shots of her exciting work.
She has strong views on trolls
A Twitter user tried to troll Laura by asking: “When are you joining Brazzers, Laura?” – Brazzers is a porn site. Woods responded in typical witty fashion:
Female reporters working in the male-dominated sports industry have historically had a difficult time with objectification, misogyny and trolling.
Talking to The Sun about her new job at talkSPORT, Woods said: “I knew there was always going to be a section of the audience who would never be won over.
“I don’t mind losing some listeners because I do feel I’m opening the door to a different audience – younger women, older women and anyone who didn’t listen before because they didn’t feel like they could be part of the conversation. That’s a big group of people I hope I can bring in.”
Woods has said she believes “women are just as invested in sport as men”.
Live football has been changed by the pandemic and so has presenting. Woods has handled a new stressful job at the height of a pandemic while no sport was being played. She also had to work alongside two presenters who weren’t in the studio with her.
However difficult, it’s refreshing to see hard work and dedication can really pay off.
