Ted Kravitz is a pitlane reporter for Sky Sports’ Formula One coverage.
Kravitz began presenting on Radio in his university days at Exeter.
Upon graduation, he trained as a journalist at CBS News’ London bureau before working for local radio stations in the South-West of England as a news and sports reporter.
He then returned to London to work for 95.8 Capital FM, on their Sony Award-winning news show, The Way It Is.
After a spell as a news and sports reporter for LBC and London News Direct, Kravitz joined Chrysalis Television at the end of 1996 to work on their Grand Prix programming.
Kravitz worked with ITV since the beginning of their F1 coverage in 1997, initially as a producer, and then as a pit-lane reporter from 2002, alongside Louise Goodman.
He replaced James Allen who was promoted to the post of race commentator, following the retirement of Murray Walker. Kravitz continued his pit-lane role, alongside Lee McKenzie, as the Formula One coverage moved to the BBC in 2009, and remained in this position until the end of 2011.
In December 2011, it was announced that Kravitz would follow Martin Brundle and others from the BBC to join BSkyB’s Sky Sports F1 coverage in 2012.
