    Ore Oduba is a rising star of sports broadcasting and a regular face on the UK’s leading morning news programme, BBC Breakfast, Ore has fast become one of TV’s hottest young prospects. Whether it’s presenting the sport on the famous red sofa or reporting live on location, Ore’s warmth and enthusiasm has seen him emerge as a BBC Breakfast favourite. In February 2015, he took a break from waking the nation to present EastEnders: Backstage Live as the programme celebrated its 30th Anniversary. Broadcasting to an audience of nearly 7 million on BBC1 and BBC3, Ore brought his charm and unique style to one of the TV events of the year.

    In 2014, Ore was one of BBC’s faces of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow; he then headed to China twice, anchoring coverage of the Artistic Gymnastics World Championships and the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing. It added to Ore’s already bursting BBC Sport portfolio that includes presenting at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Match of the Day and Football Focus. He has also interviewed some of the biggest names in sport from David Beckham to Lewis Hamilton and Lord Sebastian Coe.

    In June 2014, Ore combined his love of sport and entertainment as one of the presenters on BBC1’s brand new series A Question of Sport: Super Saturday, challenging members of the public to a number of crazy games. Ore’s work on BBC Radio 5 Live is further evidence of his all-round broadcasting ability. A recognisable voice having read sports news on the station, Ore can often be heard reporting for 5 Live Sport during the football season.

    Ore learned his trade on children’s television and, in September 2008, became the youngest ever anchor of CBBC’s Newsround and Sportsround only months after leaving Loughborough University with the title of Best On-Screen Male Presenter at the Student TV Awards (NaSTA).

    In a memorable five and a half years, Ore was at the heart of some of Newsround’s biggest trips, presenting a special programme from the British military bases in Afghanistan called Life on the Front Line and anchoring coverage from the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa. A CBBC fan-favourite, Ore was the original presenter on Match of the Day spin-off, MOTD Kickabout and hosted the sport/entertainment series Ultimate Sports Day.

    Graduating with a degree in Sport Science and Social Science, Ore had also been picked to represent the South West of England U18 in rugby as well as being on the England Hockey’s elite U18 development scheme. In 2007, he was part of the Loughborough Students 1st XI hockey squad that won BUSA Championship Gold.

    Ore was selected as a judge to find the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year (2009 - 2012) and in 2010 he was on the judging panel for BBC Radio 1’s Teen Awards. He also dusted off his dancing shoes in March 2013, opening the show on Let’s Dance for Comic Relief as Red Nose Day went on to raise more than £75 million - a new record. A year earlier he co-presented The Big Sport Relief Warm-Up ahead of another record-breaking night of fund-raising for the charity.
