An industry professional for more than 15 years, Jennie Gow is one of Britain’s leading female sports broadcasters.

Specialising in Motorsport, Jennie has presented both TV and Radio for the UK’s biggest broadcasters.

She is a presenter and pit lane reporter for BBC 5 Live’s Formula One coverage, a position in which she has excelled since 2011. Her F1 responsibilities ran hand-in-hand with her role as the lead anchor for ITV’s coverage of the FIA’s Formula E championship which she held from 2014-2016.

Alongside her commitments for the BBC and ITV, Jennie is ESPN’s F1 presenter and as well as hosting annual live events days such as Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Away from motor-powered action Jennie is a knowledgeable and respected sports presenter and reporter, having honed her skills on Sky Sports News for several years. Last season she rejoined Sky to commentate on live coverage of the Netball Superleague.

She has also presented World Cup Rowing, T20 World Cup Cricket, the FA Women’s Cup Final and she is a regular pundit (and show winner) on BBC Radio 5 Live’s ‘Fighting Talk’.

Jennie has presented many documentaries, a passion of hers since her first job at the BBC. Recently she was nominated for the SJA’s ‘Best Radio Documentary of the Year’ for her work on the BBC’s James Hunt special. She has also hosted live shows on Ayrton Senna, Women in Motorsport and England Netball.

Aside from Sport, Jennie has a keen interest in cookery, politics and animals. She proudly ran the London Marathon raising several thousand pounds for ChildLine and was part of the team presenting coverage of the 2015 event for BBC Radio.

She dreams of one day taking part in BBC TV’s ‘Masterchef’ although don’t ask her to debone a rabbit, Jennie has been a pescitarian for many years and is allergic to milk which makes travelling the world with F1 a little challenging at times!
