Edward "Ed" Chamberlin (born 6 February 1974 in Shepton Mallet, Somerset) is an English sports broadcaster who has been working for ITV since January 2017.

Presenting career[edit]

A former bookmaker and journalist, Chamberlin first appeared on Sky Sports in 1999. He co-hosted the betting show, The Full SP, with Jeff Stelling before joining the Sky Sports News team on a full-time basis. Chamberlin has presented coverage of the UEFA Champions League and the World Cup draws.[1]

In 2011, Chamberlin became the main football presenter for Sky Sports, replacing Richard Keys.[2] Chamberlin hosted coverage of Premier League matches on the Super Sunday and Monday Night Football shows. Chamberlin presented his final coverage of a Premier League match for Sky on Tuesday 17 May, a re-arranged fixture between Manchester United and Bournemouth.

Chamberlin became the main presenter of ITV's Horse Racing coverage when it moved to the channel in 2017.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Chamberlin is a supporter of Southampton F.C.. He is a former employee of Ladbrokes and has a passion for horse racing.[2]

He was diagnosed with stomach cancer in January 2009 and this took time away from his Sky Sports career. In an interview in February 2013, Chamberlin said: "There isn't a day go by when I don't think back to my illness and remind myself just how fortunate I am."[2]

In 2013, he became an ambassador for WellChild, a British charity for sick children.[4] Ed was a committee member of A Night For Life[5] in aid of The National Brain Appeal which took place in June 2017 at The Park Lane Hotel.
