Laura Woods scoops Presenter of the Year for ITV Sport at Broadcast Sport Awards

Laura Woods was named Sports Presenter of the Year at tonight’s Broadcast Sport Awards for her work fronting ITV’s coverage of England Women’s international matches as well as her presenting role for the channel at both FIFA men’s and women's World Cup Finals and the FA Cup. 

Laura’s ITV presenting colleagues Mark Pougatch, who fronts both football and rugby on the channel and Ed Chamberlin, the main presenter of ITV’s racing coverage, were also nominated in the Sports Presenter of the Year category. 

Laura, who continues to present ITV’s coverage of England Women qualifying and friendly matches as well as the FA Cup, said:

“For a presenter to win an award like this, they need a safe and encouraging environment to flourish in and that for me has been ITV.  So I’d like to thank the amazing production team we have for making every day so much fun and for putting their hearts and souls into their work behind the scenes. I’m so grateful to be a part of this family. This award means the world to me.”
Laura will present coverage of Sheppey United v Walsall in the FA Cup First Round on Friday night [3 November] from 7pm TX on ITV4.
