Diana began her career in television production, where she quickly learned the intricacies of television broadcasting before establishing herself as a motorsport reporter and presenter.
As a broadcaster with 20 years of ongoing media and broadcast experience, Diana has interviewed high-performing sports athletes during and after intense competition, as well as actors and celebrities.
Whilst previously working for the likes of Channel 4,
ITV, BBC, and satellite networks, Diana has presented numerous motorsport championships and is a regular pit lane reporter during live events around the world. In addition, she has handled crisis situations during live televised sports events.
She also hung upside down in a Corvus Racer Red Bull Air Race aerobatic plane whilst presenting the Red Bull Air Race for Channel 5.
Diana is proud to be part of the evolving media business and recently worked with Motorsport Live TV as a news presenter and recently working as a live producer for F1TV.
In the fast lane
Best known for being a motorsport pit lane reporter, clocking up 100 interviews during a 22-hour live stint on air at the infamous Le Man's 24-hour race.
Another highlight was covering the Red Bull Air Race, which meant keeping track of the action both on the ground and in the air! She has never been afraid to rise to a challenge, figuratively and literally.
In the UK alone, Diana has been the face of Late Night Sport on Five, ITV, Sky Sports, and Motors TV, where she has covered an array of different motorsports, including the British Formula 3 and GT Championship, the British Touring Car Championship and the British Superbike Championship.
She has presented on global networks including Speed TV in the USA, Motors TV in Europe. For radio, she continues to work with Radio Show Ltd (Radio Le Mans) IMSA USA, Creventic 24 Hour Series, and Race of Remembrance (MissionMotorsport).
From her experience and wisdom of working in F1, Diana secured the role of host of Sky Sports 'So you want to be an F1 Driver?' Diana's multitude of transferable skills has meant that she can, and has, worked in many sectors of the media industry and her experience has by no means been limited to motorsport.
She has also been a guest presenter on Radio 5 Live's 606 show, and to top it all off has worked with BBC Leeds and Newcastle as a reporter on their Inside Out' programme.
Hosting live audience events, awards and after-dinner speaking requires a firm hand in a velvet glove. Keeping an event running to time and co-ordinating stage movements, while engaging with and entertaining an audience, is a rare skill. Diana's authority and stage presence together with her innate charm and sense of humour, enable her to pull this off with aplomb. For this reason, she is in demand and is regularly re-booked for the same event.
