Laura Woods is set to leave talkSPORT’s Sports Breakfast show, with her last appearance to take place on Wednesday June 28, the organisation has announced.
Woods has hosted the broadcaster’s flagship show for three years, and the 35-year-old will call time on a role that has seen the presenter win multiple awards for her coverage, including Best Speech Breakfast Show at the ARIAS in 2021.
At the end of May, Mail Sport reported that Woods will be helming newly-launched TNT Sport’s Champions League coverage next season, replacing long-serving presenter Jake Humphrey when BT Sport undergoes its summer rebrand.
Woods’ statement in the wake of her exit was typically warm and wry, as the Arsenal supporter shared that she would even miss ‘Spurs fans’ after leaving the broadcaster.
‘You lot, our listeners, have given me so much comfort and guided me through some of my toughest moments, without even realising it,’ Woods said. ‘So I wanted to thank you personally for that. I will miss it dearly. Even the Spurs fans.

‘For what feels like a lifetime I’ve been a listener of talkSPORT. For the last six years it’s been my home, where we get to spend our mornings talking about sport. There’s nothing better. I know I will never find a job like this. It’s unique.
‘Three years as the host of this amazing breakfast show, three bits of silverware for the trophy cabinet and record listening figures. I’m very proud of what we achieved here. One thing’s for sure: I will always be part of this family at talkSPORT.’
