It has been reported that Sky sports may be planning to make more staff cuts as part of a major overhaul, which could potentially put the job of a long-serving pitch side reporter, Geoff Shreeves, at risk. Shreeves has been a constant fixture in Sky Sports’ coverage since he joined the company in 1992.
There is a possibility that Geoff Shreeves’s position at Sky Sports may be at risk due to the broadcaster’s plan for major restructuring. Additionally, it has been suggested that the show “Soccer AM” may also be facing cancellation.
Geoff Shreeves started working at Sky Sports around the same time that the premier league began and since then he has become a familiar voice for football fans. He is known for his pitch-side reports and interviews with players and managers after matches, which have become a regular feature of the broadcaster’s coverage. However, at present, Sky Sports is undergoing a period of significant uncertainty due to potential restructuring, which may impact the future of the organization and its employees.
Sources indicate that reporters have been requested to reapply for their positions this week. Sky Sports, however, has denied this and stated that its aim is to restructure the company to evolve and promote diversity. It is important to note that the discussions regarding job roles are distinct from the decision to potentially cancel soccer AM.
Geoff Shreeves probing and direct approach when interviewing significant figures in the football world has led to some uncomfortable moments over the years, and he has shared some of the anecdotes in the past, he has vast experience in the game but fears his time with Sky is going to end for certain.
Sky Sports announced that they will enter a period of consultation with their employees to discuss potential changes which come at a time when job cuts are anticipated. In a surprising move, they have decided to end the show “Soccer Am:” at the end of this season. The show has been on air since 1995 and has evolved over the years to become a light-hearted take on football. The current co-hosts are John Fendley and Jimmy Bullard, and the final episode is scheduled to air on May 27th.
