Broadcaster Lynsey Hipgrave

Lynsey Hipgrave is an English broadcaster. She began in radio, but, as you can plainly see, it was only a matter of time before she made it to television. :-)

Ms. Hipgrave was on the morning show of local commercial station in Manchester, England and was later a travel reporter on BBC Radio 5 before she became a sportscaster for al-Jazeera's English-language Sports + 3 channel. Evbentually she made it to BBC Television, where she did soccer commentary, including commentary on the World Cup.  For the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, she joined ESPN for its U.S.-based coverage.

If she didn't get Americans interested in soccer, nothing will. :-D
