Sue Barker MBE
Sue Barker is the UK’s leading female sports presenter.
She has established herself over the last eight years on the BBC as a key figure in the sports team, fronting such television coverage as The Olympics, Wimbledon and Grandstand.
The Wimbledon Final attracts 11 million viewers in the UK whilst the last Olympics attracted nearly 20 million viewers for the final of the 100 meters alone.
Sue is also the host presenter of the ever-popular sports quiz, A Question of Sport. Since her arrival with Ally McCoist and John Parrott five years ago, the programme has grown from less than 4 million viewers to a consistent figure of nearly 10 million.
Many people forget the level to which Sue played professional tennis. In 1976, she was ranked Number 3 in the world and won a Major – The French Open. Sue still maintains close links with the sport socially as well as via her broadcasting career.
