THE STORY so far…
I truly believe in inspiring the next generation.
Being a broadcaster, journalist & mentor is my way of doing so.
Samantha is currently an Anchor and Correspondent on the sport show ‘Beyond the Game’ for TRT World based in Istanbul. She has covered a range of sports and interviewed Olympians, Paralympians, Basketball legends, Formula One and Rally drivers, Boxers, Footballers, Rugby and NFL players.
Her exclusive interview with Premier League manager Claudio Ranieri has had over 1 million views online and received worldwide coverage on CNN, Fox Sports, MailOnline, The Telegraph and The Guardian. Away from sport, Samantha recently interviewed the Governor of Istanbul, Vasip Sahin, on the attempted coup in Turkey.
Before her move to Istanbul, she anchored and produced the Global Sports Report on the Emmy Award winning Arise News, which broadcasted live to the United States, United Kingdom, Africa and the Middle East.
In 2013, Samantha became the face of News UK’s digital revolution and presented their flagship daily sport show and World Cup specials alongside Arsenal & England legend Ian Wright. She was also the face of the official Lotto campaign for News UK, which launched to an audience of 11 million people.
Samantha is named in the 2016 Football Black List – a list that recognises and celebrates influential figures in football – and featured in the 2014 PowerList ‘Top 20 list of Britain’s Most Influential people Under 40ʹ for her achievements in the media.
Outside of the studio, Samantha is a huge believer in giving back and inspiring the next generation. Because of her knowledge and experience in her field she has chaired, mentored and featured on panels at the Houses of Commons, Wembley Stadium and The Etihad, as well as countless Universities and schools throughout the UK.
