Jake Humphrey has announced that he is stepping down from his role at BT Sport after 10 years.

Humphrey announced on social media on Friday afternoon that he is moving on to pursue other interests but thanked viewers after a decade working in his "dream job".

Humphrey has been BT's lead football presenter for 10 years, hosting Champions League nights and Premier League coverage.

In his farewell statement, Humphrey referenced his podcast and production agency Whisper Group, though he didn't explicitly state what his next job will be.

In a post on Twitter, he wrote: "After 10 wonderful years, I am stepping back from BT. As a football fan, hosting Premier League matches, FA Cup games and European Finals has meant the world to me. It has been my dream job. I’ve loved being a very small part of a world class production team.

“I also feel blessed to have shared the screen with legends of the game and incredible broadcasters, who have become friends. Thank you all. When I joined BT in 2013 I didn’t have children, Whisper Group was in its infancy and I didn’t even know what a podcast was!


“A decade on, Whisper now has hundreds of team members who I want to work with more, and the impact of High Performance amazes me daily. I’m also not ashamed to say I remain hugely ambitious.


“Stepping back from BT will allow me space to pursue other projects and fulfil other ambitions. I’m excited. To everyone that’s watched and commented, both good and bad (!), thank you! It’s been a blast."

BT Sport responded on their official Twitter account to say that Humphrey would get a fitting sendoff on the night of the Champions League final between Manchester City and Inter Milan.

According to a report in talkSPORT, Laura Woods is the favourite to replace Humphreys as BT Sport's lead football presenter. The broadcaster will soon be rebranded as TNT Sports.
