ITV today revealed their presenter line-up for its live coverage of the brand new FIA Formula E Championship.
Jennie Gow, who has an impressive track-record of presenting top-class motorsport on television and radio, will front ITV4’s live coverage of the world’s first fully-electric racing series, which starts on September 13 in Beijing.
Currently lead presenter for BBC Radio Five Live’s F1 coverage, Jennie was previously the presenter of BBC2’s MotoGP coverage and hosted Sky Sports News on their live channel and digital platforms.
“I’m delighted and very proud to have been asked to lead ITV4’s coverage of Formula E – I’m a massive motorsport fan and I’m really excited about this brand new series,” said Jennie.
“It’s great to be involved in a new chapter of motorsport history from the very beginning, and I can’t wait for the season to begin.”
The new single-seater championship features street circuits in iconic cities like Beijing, London, and Los Angeles. The season starts in China, with the final Formula E race scheduled to take part in Battersea Park in London on June 27, 2015.
Team backers include Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio and Virgin entrepreneur Richard Branson, and among the drivers are experienced Formula 1 campaigners Jarno Trulli, Nick Heidfeld and Bruno Senna.
Joining Jennie to lend their insight into the cars, the stars and the on-track action will be a selection of expert pundits.
Niall Sloane, ITV’s Director of Sport, added: “It’s great news that Jennie has joined ITV4’s coverage of this innovative new series – which promises top-level racing with the iconic backdrops of some of the world’s most famous cities. The coverage of this series adds to the strength of ITV4’s motorsport portfolio.”
