My guest today is Eleanor Oldroyd, one of Britain’s most respected sports broadcasters. If you love sport, you’ll be incredibly familiar with Elly’s voice as she’s been on our airwaves since the 1990’s and is a real trailblazer for women in sports media.
Twice voted Sports Presenter of the Year, Elly hosts powerful debates and documentaries for the BBC and right now she hosts BBC 5Live’s Weekend Breakfast and The Inside Track. Along with regular cricket commentary, Ellie’s often a guest on shows like Fighting Talk, and of course, she’s been a key BBC presenter at every Olympics and Paralympics since 1992.
This series of The Game Changers is supported by Sport England, who have done so much to tackle the inequalities women face across all areas of sport.
From the much celebrated This Girl Can campaign and initiatives that help shape school sport for girls, to schemes that encourage more female volunteers in the workforce, support female coaches and officials, and ensure more women, from all backgrounds, take leadership positions on the boards of our sports organisations.
