Jacqui Oatley has been named as the new host of Sky Sports Sunday Supplement.
She will be taking over from Neil Ashton who signed off after seven-and-a-half years in the chair with his final show on Sunday.
“I’m incredibly excited and honoured to be asked to take on the role, following Neil’s fantastic seven-and-a-half years at the helm,” said Jacqui.
“I’ve been a regular viewer of the show since it first aired as ‘Jimmy Hill’s Sunday Supplement’, when I was following my own football team home and away.
“I never dreamed that I would be sitting in the chair asking the questions as a journalist myself all these years later. I can’t wait to get cracking this Sunday.”
Jacqui, who will present her first show on Sunday from 10am on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Football, has been in football press boxes every week for the past 17 seasons.
She’s commentated and reported on World Cups and European Championships as well as the domestic leagues, and she will be a familiar face and voice to football fans up and down the country.
Gary Hughes, Head of Football, Sky Sports said: “Jacqui is a superb addition to the team. She’s an experienced broadcaster with great knowledge and journalistic integrity, as well as being a huge fan of the programme.
“I’m delighted to welcome her as host of the Sunday Supplement following in the footsteps of Jimmy Hill, Brian Woolnough and most recently Neil Ashton.”
