English journalist Sally Nugent has been long married to her husband, with whom she shares a son. She has kept the details of her marriage under wraps, including her husband and son's identity.
That being said, the BBC Breakfast presenter has shared tidbits of information that provide glimpses of her married life.
Nugent's Age and Family
Born on August 5, 1971, Nugent was interested in sports from a young age, courtesy of her parents, who raised her in Wirral Peninsula in Birkenhead, United Kingdom.
Her father was a rugby player while her mother worked as a tennis coach. Later, her brother also became a rugby player. Growing up in an athletic family helped Nugent to have an in-depth understanding of sports that helped her career as a sports reporter.
The 49-year-old graduated in communication from the University of Huddersfield.
About Her Husband's Vintage Gift
When Nugent gave birth to her son, her husband gifted her an exquisite vintage aquamarine ring. The blue color of the ring referred to the birth of their boy.
He had bought the piece from an antique jeweler in Richmond, London, not a usual go-to-shop of the pair who relied on their family jewelers, David M Robinson. They had bought their engagement ring from Robinson.
Nugent's son is also a sports enthusiast; she calls her child a football and rugby mad boy. The family-of-three live in their Chesire home with a Cavapoo named Sadie.
Nugent's Career at BBC News
Nugent started her professional career through BBC in 1999 and has been with the company for over 15 years.
In the beginning, she worked for BBC Radio Merseyside as a broadcast journalist.
A great opportunity came knocking at her door when a sports presenter took a break in the BBC's regional television newsroom, and she got called to step in. She worked on the role for two years.
In 2003, Nugent became a sports reporter for BBC News, covering national sports news, and shortly got promoted as a news presenter for the channel. She also hosted the channel show BBC Weekend News.
She got a new role to be a presenter for BBC Breakfast in 2013. She presents the news alongside Mike Bushell.
During her career at BBC, the Birkenhead native has traveled to distant countries to report sports events. She journeyed around Europe to report on Liverpool's fairytale UEFA Cup campaign in 2001.
Then, she went to Germany and South Africa to cover the FIFA World Cup in 2006 and 2010, respectively.
She also traveled to Northern Iraq to survey the role of football in the war-torn areas.
She has also brought forward the voices of retired players whose lives have been affected by severe injuries from their gaming careers.
For her noble work, she was nominated for the Sports Journalist Association awards in February 2021. The same month, her team won a Scoop of the Year award from the Royal Television Society for their free school meals story.
