Gavin’s bright, articulate and energetic persona has been used to full effect presenting for news, features and sports coverage on Sky, across their rolling coverage – developing and breaking stories as they happen for millions of viewers. Alongside this, he’s recently pioneered a new online trending short form news show, aimed at the Snapchat/Youtube generation which tackles current affairs in an accessible manner. The show’s called the Drop. Check it out on Youtube and Gavin’s website!..
He’s also the main presenter on new channel, London Live. Gavin is the regular daytime and evening news anchor, and he also hosted two weekly live shows – the football panel show and the topical debate programme, complete with a lively and engaged studio audience. In addition to this, Gavin has been used across the channel, often presenting the lunchtime news or the breakfast programme, which involves three hours of solo presenting.
Prior to London Live, Gavin has worked on ITV’s flagship show This Morning, as a news presenter, reviewer and contributor in the magazine show’s interactive hub section, engaging with presenters, celebrities and viewers. He’s also highly regarded for his work with another ITV programme, morning news show Daybreak, hosting their 2012 Olympic coverage. Before this, Gavin was a presenter on the BBC News Channel and correspondent for BBC Breakfast but got his on-air break presenting Newsround and Sportsround on CBBC from 2005.
Gavin also has his own global series, which he exec produces and fronts with the Yahoo! content teams – branded as his own ‘Gavin Ramjaun reports’ which involve short films tackling popular talking point issues which provoke public opinion. Some of the big stories he’s tackled include fracking in the UK, and the arrival of pre-school proms for kids from the US – plus everything to do with the Royals! On the odd occasion, he has been known to hang out and play football with mega-stars like Justin Bieber, or even play golf with Samuel L. Jackson!
Whilst also at the BBC, Gavin reported on Radio Five Live, the Today programme on Radio 4, and the famous BBC World Service. He later became the youngest presenter in BBC World TV history at the age of 26. He also fronted national and international sports coverage for the BBC News Channel and BBC World, and reported on the Winter Olympics in February of 2010.
