Humphrey has worked with BT for 10 years

Jake Humphrey has confirmed that he will step down from his role as a presenter on BT Sport at the end of the season.

Humphrey has been the face of the broadcaster’s Premier League and Champions League coverage but has taken a step back in the last 12 months to focus on other projects.

In a statement on Twitter, he said: “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.”

He then continued: “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…”

With BT set to change it’s name to TNT Sport as of next season, the Daily Mail have reported that Laura Woods is in contention to replace Humphrey and that talks have already taken place with bosses.
