BIFM are honoured to announce Steph McGovern as the host for the BIFM Awards 2018 ceremony and are excited to have her fantastic presence and charisma on board for this years event.
For over a decade Steph McGovern has reported on business and finance from around the world; from international summits to small business success stories. She is an established part of a globally renowned news outlet, covering business developments daily, and also regularly taking to the sofa as main co-host and presenter on live television.
During the financial crash Steph was the lead producer of financial news, working at the forefront of the award-winning coverage of the credit crunch and banking crisis. She soon began broadcasting herself, and Steph has presented on multiple well established radio news programmes.
Steph’s news coverage duties include meeting first-hand those on Britain’s business frontline. Speaking to factory workers and FTSE 100 CEOs, Steph’s mission is to uncover and explain what’s going on in the real economy.
Taking business away from news coverage Steph launched her own children’s TV show looking for the next generation of entrepreneurs, Pocket Money Pitch on CBBC. She is also the co-host of a new BBC One prime time show Shop Well For Less.
Off-screen Steph is also involved in a variety of community projects aimed at raising civic awareness. She is also a mentor for young people in her native Teesside and regularly runs workshops for schoolchildren around the North East. Steph is also former champion Irish dancer and still keeps her foot in, often attending international competitions, where she helps to coach dancers.
