Georgie Thompson is considered to be just about the most popular anchorwoman of sky sports news. Born in September 1977, she presents the 3-7pm slot on Sky Sports News.

A sportswoman herself, she has represented England in international junior tennis championships when she was studying in Queenswood Boarding School. Having finished her education from the University of Leeds where she learnt Broadcast Journalism, Georgie Thompson began her career as a production assistant for GMTV.

She moved from GMTV in January 2001 to Sky Sports News and has since covered numerous sporting events including the US Open Tennis Championships, A1 Grand Prix, Grand Prix Masters, Speedway World Cup, Americas Cup and the Race of Champions. She is also a keen surfer plus an ardent Fullham F.C. supporter.

Her extremely busy schedule does not permit her to spend a lot of time on the tennis courts now. But once she does find the time to hit the courts, she does compete but now its only with herself. Playing at a competitive level for nearly 12 times in a year in the past, she feels disappointed if she does not level with her standards.

Voted among the top 100 Sexisiest Women from the Word by way of the British Mens Magazine, FHM, Georgie Thompson had modest beginnings. The daughter of a property developer, the importance of work ethics and hard work were drilled into her at a very young age. It also ingrained in her the value of investing in property and subsequently of climbing up the property ladder.

She is the proud owner of a three bedroom terrace house in Chelsea. Although she feels that the property is considerably large as she is not married and does not have kids, this has been a huge gain for her from a purely investment point of view. Initially costing approximately 500,000 pounds at the time of purchase, the property is currently valued at almost 800,000.

Georgie Thompson doesn’t consider herself to be very good with money and making it work. Following her fathers advice, she lets her financial advisors make every one of the crucial decisions on her behalf. Having concentrated on property for a long time, she’s now started looking at other investment options as well keeping her future under consideration. Her financial advisors have shown her the need of keeping money aside for major future expenses such as education expenses whenever she has children.

This lady has also invested in an extensive insurance plan that covers her for critical illness and BUPA healthcare. Even though she finds critical illness cover very costly, she realized that having a family history of cancer she would not desire to put a value on her health.

Although she loves making money, handling money and number crunching are not a popular pastime with her. On the insistence of Sky News she set up a private limited company for herself several years back. Along with invoicing Sky News for her contract she makes certain there’s a steady stream of income arriving in from other sources like event hosting, writing and submitting articles and corporate speaking.
