The voice of ITV sport for 4 decades!
After decades of top level sports presenting, Jim Rosenthal has collected some amazing memories and is now making some more in the VO world! Jim has covered eight FIFA World Cups, three Rugby World Cups, two Olympic Games and 150 Formula One races.
Though he enjoys each and every sport he has covered, football takes the lead for him with rugby a close second! Having been sat behind the goal when Maradona's infamous "Hand of God" moment happened, and at the arguably more infamous penalty shoot-out between West Germany and England in Italia 90', it is safe to say that Jim has done his fair share of nail-biting! “Nothing beats the atmosphere in South Africa 2010 though”, as Jim describes, “that whole tournament was just incredible!” An equally patriotic favourite moment for Jim was in Australia at the 2003 Rugby World Cup, Jonny Wilkinson’s winning drop kick. Champions!
The world of VO seemed a “natural follow on” for Jim, given his successful broadcasting career. You’ll hear him currently on the History Channel for the History of Football Series, during this World Cup season. With regard to the current tournament and England team, Jim has made sure to “keep pushing the optimistic button” – it seems to be working!
Some voices are just synonymous with the world of sport. We think Jim is among the greatest. Check out his new page on our website and give his reels a listen.
