Sports journalist, presenter & chairperson
Thanks for stopping by. My name is Samantha van Wijk, freelance sports journalist, broadcaster and Eurosport’s first Dutch presenter. Currently I cover mainly Formula 1 and soccer for NUsport, including Euro 2020 and Tokyo 2020 Olympics. I have a huge passion for sports, live broadcasting and creating unique content. In addition to following sports and athletes closely, I almost never avoid any athletic challenge myself either.
FIFA TV (FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019)
Helden Media (Powervrouwen Podcast)
Veronica (Volvo Ocean Race)
RTL7 (Jupiler League)
SBS6 (GoCycling / 6 Inside Sport)
RTV NH (NH Sport live vanuit het AZ stadion / NH Buurten)
YouTube (Sam’s Sports Stories)
I also work as an event facilitator and host, national and international. The experience I have from hosting talk shows and as a journalist is very useful to lead discussions and to convey the message. I’m known for my good preparation, enthusiasm, curiosity, humor and improvisational ability. I sense the audience well and there is always interaction. Together we will take every event to the highest step of the podium!
