Presenter and Journalist

Ginny is a broadcaster with natural warmth and the ability to engage an audience, which makes her popular with viewers. But as she proved when she joined the fast paced world of Sky News she is also a confident live presenter who can turn her hand to a wide range of subjects and isn’t afraid to tackle difficult issues.

During her time at Sky News Ginny anchored the three-hour live afternoon show ‘Sky News Today’, a slot recognised to the busiest of the day when it comes to breaking news. Ginny reported live on the Conservative and Liberal Democrat leadership elections, as well as local elections. She dealt with breaking stories from all over the world and was on-air whilst the enormous impact of Hurricane Katrina was becoming clear.

Ginny understands the issues behind the headlines and can deliver with authority, whilst still retaining a light touch and friendly, down to earth manner.

Ginny is well known to viewers across the UK for her role as the presenter of the iconic BBC ONE travel show, ‘Holiday’. For four years she reported from around the world for the programme (and its various spin-offs), turning her hand to everything from ice climbing and diving to tracking wild rhino on foot in the Namibian outback.

Ginny started her career as a trainee in the newsroom of an Australia radio station before making her television debut as a reporter on a news programme aimed at young people. Ginny returned home to Manchester in her mid-twenties and worked as a presenter and reporter on a variety of programmes for Granada Television, including their flagship news programme ‘Granada Tonight’.

Ginny joined the BBC in 2001 when she reported on the BBC ONE current affairs programme ‘4 x 4 Reports’.

Ginny is also an experienced print journalist and has written extensively on travel and transport. She was the motoring editor at the ‘News of the World’ and wrote a weekly column, which saw her test driving all manner of vehicles, including cars, vans and tanks! Ginny is also an expert on motoring and transport issues, including government policy, road user’s rights and environmental concerns.

Ginny has also tackled the issue of climate change in a recent 90 minute documentary for BBC TWO which took an in-depth look at travel and transport and its environmental impact – an idea she helped to develop.
