Gary Newbon is one of the most successful sports journalists and television presenters around, having spent a staggering six decades in the industry. During this time, he’s reported on some of the biggest football matches in the sport including Champions League and Premier League fixtures. From Brian Clough to Sir Alex Ferguson, there aren’t many iconic personalities within the sport that he hasn’t interviewed, and when booked as a keynote speaker he’s able to talk about these experiences at length. Plus, he’s become an accomplished event host who can regularly be found taking to the stage at events across the country.

Gary’s career began as a junior reporter in his home city of Cambridge, before moving on to Fleet Street covering tennis and rugby. In the 1960s, he joined Westward TV and got his first taste of broadcast media. Following this, he joined ATV as a sports reporter, where he worked under the leadership of former England captain Billy Wright. Gary later took the top job himself, and was responsible for all of the network’s sporting output.

He has become best-known for his role at ITV, where he worked on the sports team for over 30 years. This included working as a roving reporter on coverage of Champions League matches and England internationals. Here, he would frequently interview players and managers. At his speaking engagements, he can discuss these experiences delighting audiences with his anecdotes from his extensive career.

In recent years, Gary has worked as a presenter for Sky Sports and hosted his own radio show on Talksport. Plus, he can regularly be found hosting events and award ceremonies across the country.
