The Debatewise Team: Gabby Logan - Patron
Gabby Logan is a highly respected broadcast journalist and presenter and has worked for Sky, ITV and the BBC. As a former international gymnast and wife of former rugby international Kenny Logan, Gabby is best known for her sports coverage.
She was the first woman to present a live terrestrial football match when covering Chelsea vs. Spurs in January 2002, and also the first woman to host Match of the Day. More recently she took part in the 2007 series of Strictly Come Dancing and in summer 2008 was one of the anchor presenters for the BBC’s coverage of the Olympic Games in Beijing.
Although this does not immediately suggest an interest in debating, a lesser known fact about Gabby is that whilst reading Law she was Sponsorship Secretary at the world famous Durham Union and this lead to a keen interest in debate.
Gabby is also patron for the NSPCC, SPARKS, the Hypotrophic Cardiomyopathy Association and Ambassador for the Prince’s Trust and we are delighted to have her as a patron of Debatewise.
