The Game Changers Podcast S3 Ep 2 - Jacqui Oatley

Posted 14.04.2020

My guest on The Game Changers this week is trailblazing sports presenter Jacqui Oatley.

Jacqui talks about her lifelong obsession with football, how she changed careers at 27 to re-train as a journalist and how lonely and isolated she felt after the hideous build up to her first appearance on BBC’s Match of The Day.

Being the first female commentator on Match of the Day is how Jacqui is best known to many. She went on to present the show in 2015, and in 2016 was awarded an MBE for her services to broadcasting and diversity.

Jacqui presented the BBC’s flagship sports news show Sportsweek, hosted Euros and World Cups for BBC and ITV and now hosts football and darts for ITV. She recently became the first female host of Sky Sports Sunday Supplement show.

It’s no wonder that in 2015 Jacqui was named as the 8th most influential woman in sport by the Independent.
