Laura Esposto-Biography

Formerly a volleyball player and model, Laura moved from Bologna to Milan in 2002.

Than from 2003 to 2004, Laura lived in Los Angeles where she was ambassador for Carl’s Jr and she carried out a series of modeling jobs.

In 2005 she move back to Milano and started working for ‘Milan Channel’ (AC Milan’s official network).

Laura says she was in the right place at the right time when she met someone who worked for the Milan Channel.

The television company were looking for a new girl to work on their programmes. Laura was working as a model then, but they asked her if she’d like to do something in television, and she was keen to get some experience in something different. Laura started off as a reporter for a reality programme. Then they asked her if she’d like to be involved in football and she agreed. Being a huge football fan – it was her ideal job!

In 2007 Channel Five in the United Kingdom gained the rights to broadcast Serie A highlights and live games during the 2007–08 season.
The people at Channel Five in the United Kingdom were looking for an Italian girl to present this Italian football show, who could speak perfect English, and knew what they were talking about when it came to football. They saw Laura on the Milan Channel, & offered her a co-presenting role on the show.

Laura took the chance as she thought it would be a great chance to do something new, and in 2007 she moved to England to co-present ‘Football Italiano’ alongside Mark Chapman on Channel Five Television. The show thus returned to terrestrial television and live games were shown weekly at 1:30pm UK time on Sundays, as the original series on Channel Four.

However Channel Five didn’t buy the rights to Italian football after 2008, so Laura moved back to Italy and has worked on Sky Sport (Italy) since September 2009.

Since 2011 she has been the Presenter of ‘Studio1Stadio’ – a weekly Football Magazine about Serie A on DigitalTv.

In May 2010 Laura is been the host of the UEFA 2016 European Championships candidacy  which was held in Geneva.
