A Conversation with David Jones, Host of Sky Sports Biggest Live Football Shows Super Sunday and Monday Night Football

In episode 2 of the Masters of Craft podcast, we speak with David Jones, leading sports presenter and host of Sky Sports Super Sunday and Monday Night Football on his journey to reach one of the pinnacles in his profession.

David Jones is a leading sports presenter and host of Sky Sports biggest live football shows Super Sunday and Monday Night Football.

David has hosted hundreds of live outside broadcasts for Sky from England internationals to cup finals, play-off finals, Champions League games, and the Football League.

He took over as the host of Super Sunday and MNF in 2016, anchoring the Premier League’s biggest games alongside Thierry Henry, Jamie Redknapp, Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher and Graeme Souness.

David was also host and co-producer of The Footballers Football Show, a panel discussion programme which won acclaim for tackling some of the game’s big issues, and now regularly appears on the week nightly Sky Sports show The Debate.

David is a long-standing supporter of Sunderland AFC and in December 2019 fulfilled a lifetime ambition by joining the board as a non-executive director.

His role is to advise the owner on football matters and structure, whilst liaising with the manager, head of recruitment, head of the academy and the football operations director.

David is an active supporter of several charities and is in the process of organising his own inaugural Golf Day at The Grove, supporting Blood Cancer UK, which is scheduled for Spring 2021.

He ran the Great North Run in 2013 to raise funds for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation supporting cancer care in the North East, and the Royal London Parks Half Marathon in 2015 for Parkinson’s in support of his friend and Sky colleague Dave Clark. David joined Dave for his fund raising Coast to Coast Walk in 2016 and he has also helped to raise funds for Down’s South London helping children with Down’s Syndrome.
