Sally Nugent Work Experience
During her journalism career, she has been to cover big stories which include the Grand National that never was in the year 1997. In addition, she moved to the regional newsroom and after the sports presenter took a break, they asked for her to step in for the next six weeks. Later on, she happened to remain there for the next about two years.
At the time, Nugent got an opportunity to travel around Europe even as Liverpool was going on its fairytale UEFA Cup campaign in the year 2001. This campaign happened to be a huge success. In relation to this, Liverpool happens to beat Alaves 5-4 in their final after they get an extra time and an own goal.
In addition to all this, she has had an opportunity to cover the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester. While there, she was broadcasting live every night. Additionally, she saw the effect a big sporting event can have on a certain region and the people living there. She believed that London would get to benefit in a way similar when the Olympics arrived there.
Later on, she moved to national news where she covered a couple of big stories in the sports industry. These include two FIFA World Cups in South Africa and Germany. Nugent goes ahead to state that it is not always as glamorous as it may look. While in Cape Town in the year 2010, she shares that her studio was a tiny portacabin with no heating. While in the middle of an African winter, she was able to broadcast most evenings with a tiny electric heater going full blast while wearing a big fluffy blanket over her knees.
Later on, after the South African World Cup, she decided to look for a place where football makes a real difference in people’s lives, and this was when she moved to Iraq. There, the Iraqi national football team continues to play despite the bombings, huge religious divides between them, and wars.
Nugent counts it a privilege to spend some time with the Iraq national football team where she traveled around northern Iraq even as they prepared for a big Tournament. All these players usually become a target to the terrorists just for being part of the national football team. However, all these people took the risk just to play in their national shirt. Away from work, she enjoys watching sports.
