“Don’t be sad it’s over. Just smile because it happened.”
Jake Humphrey’s final words as he signed-off from his final Formula One broadcast for the BBC.
It was announced in September that the BBC star had quit the corporation to join BT to front their Premier League football coverage from the 2013/14 season.
BT won the rights to show 38 Premier League games per season for the 2013/14 – 2015/16 seasons, which cost the company £738m. The matches on BT Vision will be shown mainly on Saturdays at 12.45pm, and on bank holidays and midweek.
Jake said at the time: “I am incredibly excited to be joining the team at BT not just because I get to fulfil a lifelong dream of presenting the Barclays Premier League but because of the fresh perspective that BT will bring to both sport and broadcasting in this country. To be a part of this young, vibrant team who are as passionate about sport, as I am, is a privilege.
