Lynsey Hipgrave is a welcome sight and sound to any and all viewers of ESPN’s World Cup coverage. The English blonde has joined Mike Tirico and Bob Ley as a host to numerous international soccer stars/talking heads.
Just because this is her first time on the ESPN big leagues doesn’t mean she has no hosting experience–previously Lynsey hosted BT Sport Live on BT Sport1 HD, a big English channel which actually just bought the rights to ESPN’s UK coverage. She also co-hosts her a radio show every Saturday morning in the UK called The Danny Baker Show.
But as you’ll see in the photos below, hers is not a face for radio. It’s for television. And anytime you can distract us from the douche-ness that is Alexi Lalas, you’re doing a great job. Keep it up Lynsey.
