John Watson BBC

Watson is a sports presenter for the BBC. He joined the corporation in August 2012.

During an interview Watson explained how he got the job. “I did some work experience at a radio station when I was in school, helping out on weekends. This got me interested in broadcast journalism, so I decided to do a journalism degree. After university I got a job as a local news reporter, but sport always interested me the most, so I tried to cover as many sports stories as possible.

“It was always my ambition to work for the BBC so I applied for a job as a researcher on the children’s news programmes Newsround and ended up getting a six-month placement. Having done some production roles, I decided to try and make the step into sport. I applied to work as a sports presenter on BBC news and made the jump from children’s TV to adult.”


Day to day Watson is based in the studios in Salford, as part of the team presenting bulletins on the BBC news channel, on BBC Breakfast and a whole host of programmes. But his main job is to compile the big sports stories of the day and produce a sports bulletin on various different programmes – BBC Breakfast, BBC News and BBC World News.

He also mentioned that his most memorable moment is at the London Olympics back in 2012, on ‘super Saturday’ when GB won 6 gold medals across the day. “There was a really special moment inside the Olympic stadium when GB won 3 gold medals in 45 minutes – Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Gregg Rutherford,” he said.

During his tenure, Watson has been able to interview Andy Murray, David Beckham, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Serena Williams.
