Vick Hope

A Nigerian-Geordie with a Cambridge degree, Vick is a multilingual, multi-skilled and multifaceted young presenter making waves in the multi-platform world of broadcast.

Vick is currently presenting the Capital FM Breakfast show every morning with Roman Kemp and also hosts 4Music Trending Live and Box Fresh. In 2018 Vick joined The Voice UK and The Voice Kids as the new digital reporter, as well as fronting Sky One’s Carnage alongside Freddie Flintoff and Lethal Bizzle.

Vick also presented all the live coverage from this years Isle of Wight Festival for Sky1 and Sky Arts alongside Edith Bowman and Joel Dommett; interviewing global bands such as Kasabian, Liam Gallagher and The Killers.

For Vick, it all began at the age of 19, when Vick spent a year living in Buenos Aires, where she covered Latin American current affairs, arts and culture for The Argentina Independent as their youngest ever journalist. She also wrote for The Argentimes and Time Out Buenos Aires, and it was here that she was snapped up by MTV, beginning her presenting career on entertainment shows for their international channels.

Experience gained reporting for MTV News brought her to the attention of one of the world’s leading news organisations, ITN, where she’s quickly made her mark as a popular on-screen news and entertainment broadcaster. Vick is now a mainstay reporter for ITN, where she produces, scripts, edits and presents news and entertainment bulletins, reaching an audience of 4.3million a week across ITV2, 3 and 4.

In 2015 Vick took the all-important Saturday morning slot on The Disney Channel, while in the world of sport hosting the cycling coverage for Channel 4, Eurosport, BT Sport and Sky Sports 2, 3 & 4. After holding her own alongside seasoned sports personalities and anchors, Vick was asked to present her own series, Street Velodrome, returning for a second series on BT Sport. With this ability to seamlessly straddle diverse genres and tackle all manner of subjects, Vick has proved valuable to BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, where she’s covered Sunday morning and weekday afternoon slots, discussing current topics of the day. She has contributed as a panellist and talking head on a range of topical news and entertainment shows for ITV, BBC World, Channel 5 and more.

Vick’s first TV documentary investigated the rise in online horror for Channel 5. The Slenderman Killings made The Guardian’s Pick Of The Day and garnered an excellent response for her inquisitive and fearless approach in some truly unsettling situations.

Online, Vick became the face of Vevo’s first ever presenter-led programming, VVV, amassing hundreds of thousands of views, while hits on her ITN interviews are now in the millions. She has interviewed some of the biggest names in entertainment with Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, Harrison Ford and Jennifer Lawrence all falling for her warmth and charm. She was also the winner of Marie Claire’s Broadcasting Power House award in 2017.

Vick has fronted content for brands including Boots, very.co.uk, Virgin Media, Apple, Red Bull and Toyota, and having modelled for labels including ASOS and Collectif, appearing in Elle, Wonderland and Vogue with a distinct and effortless style. She drew from this experience in presenting documentary film, That’s Not Me, exploring the use of retouching in fashion, which went on to win the BBC Award for Factual Entertainment at Visions Film Festival, and was nominated for an RTS Award. She also fronted Amnesty International’s ethical fashion campaign and works with human rights and refugee projects in East London. Pro-active in her attitude to content production, and with a finesse when it comes to getting deep into the subjects she’s keen to explore, Vick regularly arms herself with her camera and takes to the streets to produce her own documentary shorts, exploring everything from institutionalised racism in fashion, to Brazilian culture in London, to the impact of exoticism and an unstable currency on how much Argentine steak we eat! With a flair for developing vivid programming ideas from her experiences, interests and passions, Vick has some exciting factual projects in the pipeline.
