Julian is a familiar face in living rooms across the country as an established presenter on Sky Sports.
Having joined Sky in 2008, he’s now one of the senior anchors at Sky Sports News and hosts the popular Soccer Special programme, overseeing a hectic three hours of live goal action whilst controlling (or trying to at least!) a panel of four ‘enthusiastic’ former professionals!
Jules has presented live International football, Premier League and Football League matches for Sky as well as hosting the broadcaster’s coverage of World Cup and European Championship draws. He’s also fronted Sky Sports News’s coverage of many big stories, including England’s “Meet the squad” ahead of the 2018 World Cup, Euro 2016 (live from Paris), Leicester City’s Premier League title parade and the 2013 Champions League final at Wembley. Jules also presented live from the London Olympics in 2012, interviewing gold medalists, Olympic legends and even the Prime Minister!
Jules’s broadcasting career began in radio, where he worked for many years as a sports presenter and reporter in Manchester and Sheffield. Whilst in Manchester he reported on the 2002 Commonwealth games and covered both of the City’s football teams, before being appointed Sports Editor at Hallam FM in Sheffield, where he presented the weekly sport show and commentated on major matches.
Jules has interviewed some of the biggest names in sport but is equally at home hosting events away from the cameras, from award ceremonies to corporate functions. He thrives on engaging a live audience, putting guests at ease and ensuring the event runs smoothly.
“Jules was an obvious choice to host events here at Everton – his presenting style sits perfectly with the professional, yet relaxed atmosphere we wish to create. With his profile from working on Sky Sports News and the excellent work he’s completed for us, I would recommend him to any potential client. He is a first class host and will add value to any event”
(Gary Wilton, Head of Corporate Hospitality, Everton FC).
