Miles Harrison is the principal rugby union commentator for British television network Sky Sports. After obtaining a degree in Politics and Economic History from the University of York and a post-graduate qualification in Radio Journalism from City University London, he worked for the BBC in York and Leeds. In the early 1990s, he moved to BBC Radio Sport, commentating on rugby union, football and cricket. He was also part of the commentary team for BBC Radio's coverage of the Wimbledon tennis tournament each summer and was a regular presenter of the sports news on Today (BBC Radio 4).
In 1994, when Sky secured the rights to live club rugby, Harrison was invited to be the lead commentator. Since then, he has covered four British and Irish Lions tours, twelve Heineken Cup finals and was named the 2007 Guinness Rugby Union Journalist of the Season. He has also been the regular commentator for England internationals, at home and abroad. In 1997, he was the commentator on Sky's BAFTA award-winning rugby union coverage.
In print, Harrison has written two books for Aurum Press: Best Seat in the House – the story of the 1997 British Lions tour to South Africa and Grand Slam – a history of the Five Nations Championship. He has also ghosted the autobiography of Welsh rugby legend JPR Williams Given the Breaks.
