About Ian Irving
Ian Irving is a television presenter and reporter.
Often spotted on a touchline, lurking with intent behind a Barclays Premier League manager, Ian has become one of the most recognisable faces for the international audience of the most famous football league in the world.
He currently presents and reports on MUTV and for Premier League Productions at IMG in London. He hosts the Fantasy Football show on Premier League TV. He is also a regular host on the Telegraph's Total Football podcast.
Since 2010, he’s been a nomadic North West reporter for IMG Premier League Productions covering some of the biggest stories and most dramatic matches for a global audience of up to 600 million homes.
A regular at the press briefings of Sir Alex Ferguson and Roberto Mancini, Ian’s informed insight has led to him being a contributor on ESPN (UK), MUTV, Fox Soccer USA and Sportsnet Canada.
He cut his teeth at hometown Manchester TV station Channel M - working his way up to become the sports anchor on the live flagship news programme, Channel M Today, presenting alongside Andy Crane and interviewing local and international sporting stars.
After working for free and mithering producers with ideas, Ian was originally given a break reporting for the Great Manchester Football Show on Channel M. He went on to present and co-produce the programme as well.
Fresh, friendly and very ambitious, Ian has worked on a number of shows covering boxing, cricket, athletics and rugby giving him a wide range of experience and broadening his own sporting horizons as well.
Away from work, he can be found in the local boozer watching the football or kicking holes out of a forward who’s quicker than him on an astro-turf pitch.
Ian studied Journalism at the University of Sheffield and graduated in 2007.
