Zoey is an exciting and dynamic presenter/journalist who has exceptionally diverse qualities. Her current work on ‘At the Races’ and ‘Sky Sports’ has led her to being a much loved and well recognised figure in the world of horse racing. Coming from a family background  within the racing world, she has been able to bring this knowledge and experience to the fore. She has even been known to take part in the occasional race for charity! She started her broadcasting career on local BBC radio before she transferred to ITN as a junior reporter to begin her presenting career with a stint in their newsroom. This was quickly followed by her presenting the evening weeknight bulletins for ‘5 News’. She combined that with reports on entertainment for 5’s weekend news shows and on rural affairs for the lunchtime and evening news bulletins. This exposure led to a daytime slot hosting on the ITN Newschannel and regular stints reporting for ‘First Edition’ on Channel 4. Eager to expand her ‘live’ presenting skills Zoey was thrilled to be offered a chance to front ‘Sky’s’ brand new channel dedicated to Horse Racing ‘At The Races’ Her natural style and extensive knowledge of this world meant that she was soon hosting its morning News show on ‘Sky Sports’ they also asked her to start presenting the ‘Winning Post’ section. Her aptitude for ‘live’ unscripted work, on which she thrives, has given her the opportunity to indulge in her love of travel over the last few years by presenting programmes for Sky from such diverse parts of the world as France, America, South Africa, Dubai and Australia. During this period she has also had the opportunity to go back to her roots and file racing reports into ‘Talk Sport’ radio. She has also recorded many Sky V/O promos for the station. As a well recognised figure in the world of racing, Zoey often hosts industry related Award ceremonies and Events. Her sassiness, love of fashion and the broader, social side of sport, combined with her wit and journalistic skills resulted in her being headhunted by The Sun Newspaper. She writes a weekly Saturday racing column for them. Zoey is keen to broaden her expertise in all areas of Broadcasting – not just sport and is ready for a challenge!

The Lesters

John Blake, Chief Executive

"Zoey Bird has been employed by the Jockeys Association to co-present The Lesters Awards for the past two years. This ceremony, which has been in place for 17 years, rewards the achievements of professional jockeys and is a key racing industry event. Zoey has done an excellent job for the past two years, quickly gelling with an established presenter of these awards in her first year and taking a lead role with a new partner in 2007. Her approach to preparation and rehearsal was exactly right and the demand for her services within racing underlines her abilities in this area. I have no hesitation in recommending her for this type of work and am certain that she will enhance your event."

"Zoey Bird is an extremely well known and popular personality in the horse racing and equine world. Best known as a television presenter on Sky Channel 415 At The Races (ATR), Zoey fronts news programmes, chat shows and special features and is one of a regular team hosting live outside broadcasts from race meetings around the country. As well as her regular TV slots, Zoey is a frequent and experienced host for awards ceremonies, charity events and hospitality gatherings at sporting events, many held at prestigious venues in London. Zoey has for the last few years hosted the National All Weather Jockeys and Trainers Championship Awards at Lingfield Park along with co-host Derek Thompson from Channel 4. The event is attended by 300 guests and filmed by ATR. Zoey always conducts this and other ceremonies with grace and professionalism, and as well as her extremely good looks and beautiful dress sense, she has the personality, calmness and intelligence needed for live audience stage performances. I would have absolutely no reservations in recommending Zoey as a host or presenter for any sporting or other public event."
