After nearly two decades with Sky Sports News, Bryan Swanson is departing to become FIFA’s Director of Media Relations.
Millions of football fans recognize the channel’s Chief News Correspondent for his frenzied dispatches on transfer deadline day.
Swanson started working for Sky Sports in 2003 as their North East Correspondent in Newcastle, but moved to London soon after.
Bryan Swanson, who was seen live reporting for Sky Sports News last year, is poised to quit the broadcaster after 18 years to take up a role as FIFA’s Director of Media Relations.

He took over as Chief News Reporter in September 2008, replacing Dan Roan, and has since covered a wide range of stories.
Swanson confirmed his departure through Twitter on Thursday morning, as he prepares to relocate to Switzerland to take up his new position with FIFA.
‘This is my final day at Sky Studios before leaving next week, capping off an fantastic 18-year adventure,’ he tweeted.
‘It’s been an enormous privilege to travel the world, interview the biggest players, and cover so many memorable stories in sports news – not to mention the transfer window (Deadline Day, Totaliser, Deal Sheet) and VAR,’ Swanson said of his new post as FIFA’s Director of Media Relations.
‘Thank you to Sky Sports’ dedicated teams.
They are passionate about what they do, and it has been a pleasure to learn from them.
‘I’ve been working in sports journalism since I graduated from high school in 1997, and I’m looking forward to a new challenge as FIFA Director of Media Relations in Switzerland.’
‘Thank you for the memories – remain safe,’ says the narrator.
