More about Stephen McIvor:

After working as a radio announcer in the 1980s, Stephen joined Sky Sport when the channel first went to air in 1990. Over the next two and a half decades he covered primarily motorsport and rugby league — as well as tennis, cycling and “just about every sport imaginable”.

In 2016, Stephen left Sky. He has been an anchor for coverage of two Rugby World Cups, the 2010 Winter Olympics and Commonwealth Games, and the 2012 Olympic Games.

In 2021 the official America’s Cup website named him as its commentator and anchor for the 36th cup, held in Auckland.

Since 2014, he has been a presenter on Sky Speed alongside Greg Murphy, a New Zealand motorsport great.

In 2021, the 4-time Bathurst 1000 winner Greg Murphy has joined the SENZ family, joining broadcaster Stephen McIvor with an all-new show across the network and they will share the microphone for Race Control.

Stephen’s experience on and off camera has meant he can either follow a strong script or improvise accordingly. He loves to interact with people and is a natural entertainer -always professional yet never forgetting to bring his great sense of humour. Whatever the event, Stephen brings true value to every project.

Stephen has hosted The Halberg Awards and red carpet events (including the very first Lord of the Rings movie in Wellington).

Stephen is known for his professional approach and strong research around any event he is involved with and he is the consummate professional Master of Ceremonies.
