Suzi Perry is an English broadcaster and journalist who was the face of MotoGP coverage on British television for over a decade. After graduating in business studies, Perry went to Japan to work as a model, living there for a year. When she returned, she joined the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) as a motor-sports reporter and presenter. She was one of the most prominent journalists covering the MotoGP circuit in the UK in the 2000s. As a leading sports journalist, she did not limit herself to one sport. During her 13-year-long stint with BBC, Perry covered many high-profile tournaments, including the 2004 Summer Olympics, Wimbledon and the famous London Boat Race. In 2010, her health took a turn for the worse, and she decided to hang up her boots as a MotoGP journalist. In 2013, Perry created history by becoming the lead presenter of BBC’s Formula One coverage. She became the first woman anchor to front an F1 season’s coverage on British TV. Apart from sports, she has also co-hosted a technology programme called ‘The Gadget Show’ on Channel 5. Her contribution to journalism and technology earned her an honorary doctorate in engineering from the University of Wolverhampton in 2016. Perry is also involved in charitable activities and supports several foundations.
