Charlie Webster Colin Baldwin

Fee Band

Charlie has presented sports coverage on Sky, Channel 4, BBC and ITV. She was the first female football host in Asia and the first to anchor a world heavyweight title fight. She is an ambassador for Women’s Aid, sits on a Ministry of Justice’s advisory panel, and hosts and produces the Undiscussable podcast examining the stigma and effects of domestic and sexual abuse. A versatile and experienced host, she also speaks on gender discrimination in sport, and women’s rights and leadership.


Sports broadcaster and campaigner Charlie Webster is also a marathon runner, charity fundraiser, podcaster and writer. She is an Ambassador for Women’s Aid and Malaria No More, and has advised government.

After a degree in Language and Linguistics, Charlie became the face of Real Madrid TV, the first club-run sports channel of its kind. After a few years of interviewing the likes of Beckham, Ronaldo and Zidane she moved to ESPN, fronting Premier League coverage and becoming the first female sports presenter in Asia. She went on to work for the BBC, ITV and Sky Sports, covering boxing (becoming the first woman to anchor a heavyweight world title fight), motorsport, the Olympics and Paralympics, and of course, football. Qualified in psychotherapy, she also hosts the My Sporting Mind podcast, interviewing sportspeople about psychology and mental health.

Away from the studio Charlie has undertaken many charity challenges, including Charlie’s Big Challenge, which saw her run 250 miles in a single week, visiting and reporting from 40 football clubs around England. She’s competed in marathons and triathlons, qualified as a personal trainer, and gained her FA Level 2 coaching badge. She’s also written for Running Fitness magazine, the Huffington Post, The Independent and Daily Telegraph. Whilst cycling 3,000 miles from London to Rio for charity (and coinciding with the Rio Olympics) Charlie contracted malaria and three other tropical diseases and was given 24 hours to live. Doctors described her survival as miraculous, overcoming a brain haemorrhage and kidney failure, and having to learn to walk again.

Charlie is an active campaigner around domestic and sexual abuse, and an ambassador for the Women’s Aid charity. She hosts and created the Undiscussable podcast, giving a voice to abuse survivors and examining the law, perceptions and wider social effects around the subject. As well as being part of the Ministry of Justice’s Victims Panel, she has spoken in Parliament, the UN, and the UN Senate, has appeared on This Week, and directly influenced legislation.
