Amy Christophers. Journalist, Sports Presenter, Model, Referee and Influencer. Former glamour who went under the name of Brandy Brewer. Amy took the brave decision to leave that industry and pursue a career in Sports. Originally from Cornwall Amy now lives in London. We at Those London Chicks are pleased as punch she has taken the time out to chat with us.
You were part of the glamour model industry for 10 years under the name Brandy Brewer. Clearly successful. Why leave?
How did you make the transition into sports?
Have you faced any challenges along the way? If so, how have you overcome them?
We at Those London Chicks are all about women supporting women. Have you found that you’ve come up against negative criticism from other women? If so, how did it make you feel, and how did you deal with it?
You come across as super confident, feminine and glamorous. A hindrance?
Would you consider the sports industry to be sexist?
Any examples of this that you care to share?
What do you think can be done to change the perception of women in sports presenting?
What was your relationship with sports growing up?
What has been your professional highlight so far?
If you could cover any sporting event. What would it be and why?
Outside of work, do you do any sport yourself?
I love a visit to the driving range or a bit of tennis, but apart from that, I don’t actually like to participate in physical sports. I’m an armchair fan for sure! I recently filmed a batting master class with England Cricket vice-captain Jos Buttler and played in goal at Stamford bridge with Coca Cola and the premier league & I have a lot of improvements to make haha so I think I’ll just stick to the presenting and writing.
What do you do for downtime?
What is your dream job?
What advice would you give to other women hoping to enter the field of sports presenting?
Finally, what’s next for you?
I have some exciting things coming up over the summer, but I don’t want to jinx anything just yet.
