His journalistic career spans 30 years and he is the longest-serving breakfast television anchorman in Britain – if not the world! He currently hosts the 3-hour “Sunrise with Eamonn Holmes” programme on Sky News, Monday to Thursday mornings. Eamonn’s reign as the king of breakfast television stems back to the launch of the newly created GMTV in 1993, which he presented for 13 years.
Outside of his early starts, he continues to host a wide variety of programmes on all channels, appealing to both men and women of all ages such as the Friday edition of ITV1’s “This Morning” alongside real life partner Ruth Langsford.
Eamonn has presented top-rated, prime-time quiz shows including “The National Lottery Jet Set” for BBC1, “Sudo-Q” for BBC Two and “The Rich List” for Fox TV in America. He has recently fronted ITV’s prime time series “The Feelgood Factor”, along with Myleene Klass.
He has won the Television, Radio & Industry Club’s award for Best Satellite and Digital TV Personality for two years running and has received honorary doctorates from Queens University Belfast and Staffordshire University.
Father of four Eamonn is a news and sports junkie and a passionate Manchester United fan and furthermore has a great knowledge and love of soccer, as well as several other sports. He divides his time between Belfast - where he lives, London - where he works, and Manchester - where he worships!
