Jim is a popular awards host and after dinner speaker.


Jim White was one of the senior presenters on Sky Sports News, where he kept fans on the ball by sourcing and breaking the latest football news. He was especially known for his round-the-clock presenting marathon on transfer deadline day. Jim moved on to Radio Talksport  in September 2016 to present the morning programme. Jim’s experience in media spans an impressive three decades.


After studying Journalism at Napier College, Edinburgh, Jim White’s career kicked off with Scottish and Universal Newspapers. Five years later, he made a game-changing move into television as an entertainment news reporter at STV. Later he joined the sports department where he became main anchor of the company’s football output, presenting STV’s Scotsport in 1989 and succeeding the legendary Arthur Montford. Jim also presented its spinoff show Scotsport Extra Time. Along the way, he covered two World Cups, Mexico ’86 and France ’98, and won a Scottish BAFTA.

Next up was Sky Sports. Joining in 1998, after a spell presenting Scottish football and Scotland internationals, he eventually relocated his expertise and growing reputation to London: He broadcast to eight million people a week in the UK (and beyond in Europe, the US, Australasia, and the Middle East).

The face of the transfer window coverage (who famously confirmed that Torres was heading to Chelsea and Beckham to PSG), Jim has maintained numerous industry contacts with the likes of top managers Harry Redknapp, Roy Hodgson and Paul Lambert.

Not one to watch from the side-lines, Jim’s hard-hitting presentation style has earned him respect and trust from audiences, further making him a popular Host & compere at corporate events and Award ceremonies.
