Ed grew up playing sport during a peripatetic childhood spent in London, Cardiff, The West Indies, Norfolk and Malvern. He studied English and Sports Science at Loughborough University whilst playing and coaching football for the university. In this period he summered in Ohio working as a football coach and moved to the US full-time to take a Masters in Journalism at Ohio University after completing his undergrad.
During two years in the American mid-west, Ed anchored the local TV sports news, commentated on radio and wrote for several local papers, covering news and sport. He returned to England in 2005 and has since worked for The BBC, MUTV, IMG, Virgin/Absolute Radio and most conspicuously and regularly, Sky Sports.
Since 2007 Ed has worked as a presenter at Sky, fronting TV and digital content. He’s also reported on football, boxing and rugby. He’s presented sport on Sky News since 2011 and Sky Sports News since 2014. Ed hosted the boxing during the 2012 Olympics in London and announced Anthony Joshua as Super Heavyweight Champion. He then presented the boxing podcast Toe-2-Toe between 2014 and 2017, a period that saw the show rise to 4th in the UK sports podcast charts.
Ed is available for presenting, hosting and writing work outside of his regular commitments.
