Eleanor Oldroyd is one of the UK’s most accomplished radio presenters and broadcasters. Over the course of her extensive 30+ years in the industry, she’s been entrusted to cover some of the country’s most high-profile and prestigious events, from huge sporting occasions to cultural highlights. Now, she’s taken the skills she’s learned from a lifetime in broadcasting to corporate and personal events across the country. Available to book as an event host for all kinds of occasions, Eleanor seamlessly transfers her calm, composed and engaging nature to the live stage, ensuring your event remains on track at all times.

Her career began in commercial radio before joining BBC Radio Shropshire as a sports producer in 1986. From here she moved to London, working on the BBC’s national stations such as Radio 5 and 5 Live. Eleanor’s talent for broadcasting and editorial eye quickly made her one of the BBC’s most well-respected presenters, something that makes her ideal for event hosting.

In 1995, she became the first-ever female presenter of Sports Report, and since then has been a mainstay on BBC radio. Throughout her career, she has covered some of the sport’s biggest events including Wimbledon, cricket Test matches, the summer and winter Olympics, and much more. Alongside her live coverage of such events, Eleanor has also been a regular on sports programmes across the network like Fighting Talk and Saturday Breakfast. Her work has seen her earn a reputation for being one of the industry’s most popular broadcasters, a fact that was reinforced by being twice named ‘Broadcast Presenter of the Year’ at the Sports Journalists Awards.

And, it’s not only sports where her broadcasting pedigree has been acknowledged. In 2021 she was the only journalist granted access to St Georges Chapel during the Covid-19 pandemic to cover Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral.

The perfect host for any type of occasion, Eleanor Oldroyd is ideal for award ceremonies, fundraising events, corporate engagements and much more. To find out how to book Eleanor, simply contact Evolve Talent & Speakers today.
