Sally Taylor with HMS Endurance

Sally with HMS Endurance in 2007

Sally Taylor

Sally joined BBC South 20 years ago and has reported on virtually every major story in the region over that time. She was awarded the MBE in 2005.

Sally Taylor

On-screen, Sally is well-known for her easy and relaxed style.  She loves presenting South Today and takes her responsibilities very seriously, but nothing is more important to her than interacting with the audience.

Away from the screen Sally enjoys sailing.  She has a passion for good wine and food and is a keen organic gardener.

She writes a weekly column in the Southern Daily Echo, which she calls her "rant of the week"!

In the Spring of 2007 Sally was able to fulfil a lifelong ambition and travel to Antarctica.

Sailing on the Royal Navy Ice Patrol vessel, HMS Endurance on a 21,000 mile journey via the Falkland Islands, Sally broadcast live from the amazing landscape.

In 1999 Sally underwent surgery for breast cancer and as a result is now involved in a number of charities.

She is also a Patron of 'Simon Says', a charity that helps children who are bereaved. She works closely with the Hampshire Learning and Skills Council and Business Link in promoting local businesses across the South.

Sally was awarded the MBE for services to regional broadcasting, collecting the honour from the Queen at a ceremony in Buckingham Palace in December 2005.

Sally's professionalism and attention to detail is key to her style and her sharp sense of humour with her colleagues and with the audience at home, has made her one of the most popular presenters in the South of England.

Sally on Saturday

On Saturday mornings Sally presents the breakfast show on BBC Radio Solent.  Great chat, croissants and coffee are the order of the day.
