One of golf’s most well-recognised TV presenters, Di Dougherty, formerly Di Stewart, works for Sky Sports. Having first played the game aged just six, Doughtery’s love for the game has made her one of the leading speakers on the after-dinner circuit, where she is known to talk on topics including leadership, peak performance and teamwork.
After leaving university, Dougherty gained her first broadcasting job working on the production team for Galaxy Radio. Soon after Dougherty joined Sky Sports, not initially as a presenter but as a runner. Her love for the sport was soon recognised and it was only a matter of time before her talents as a presenter were established too.
Her first appearance as a TV presenter was for Sky Sports News. Having a burning passion for the sport, Dougherty had a competitive edge over other presenters as she knew the sport extremely well. Dougherty’s charismatic and energetic personality ensured she was an instant hit as a presenter, with many viewers remarking how refreshing it was to see a presenter with such passion for the sport. It wasn’t long before Dougherty became a regular feature on Sky Sports.
After years of hard work, Dougherty became the lead host and TV presenter on the Sky Sports Golf channel. Her ability to discuss the game with players led to her regularly interviewing the biggest players in the game. She has become a firm favourite with golfing fans and has also featured on a number of other programmes - playing small parts in BBCs Mrs Brown’s Boys and Sky 3’s More Big Ideas - showing just how versatile she is in front of a camera.
Since establishing herself as a leading sporting TV presenter, Di Dougherty has become a popular golf speaker on the after-dinner circuit. With her infectious passion for the sport, Dougherty can deliver exceptional speeches for all types of audiences, tapping into topics including performing under the spotlight, maximising success and effective teamwork.
