Julie Stewart-Binks Named as Host of ‘FOX Soccer Daily’ Show on FOX Sports 1

FOX Sports has named Julie Stewart-Binks as the host of their brand-new daily soccer show, FOX Soccer Daily, that’s scheduled to launch on August 19.

Stewart-Binks was introduced as the new host during half-time of Saturday night’s broadcast of the Everton-Real Madrid match on FOX. The female presenter will be joining Warren Barton, Eric Wynalda and Brian McBride on the show.

A former sports anchor and reporter specializing in ice hockey, the Canadian previously worked with FOX Soccer in Winnipeg for four months from July-October, 2011 where she trained as an anchor and was responsible for writing and editing highlight packages.

Stewart-Binks joined FOX Sports 1 this summer, and is one of several women with blonde hair that the Rupert Murdoch-owned company has hired to work for FOX Sports 1 (along with Charissa Thompson, Erin Andrews and Molly McGrath). Sky Sports, also owned by Murdoch, employs a similar policy of hiring attractive women to present their sports news programs. Hopefully she knows her soccer too.

Here’s her demo reel:

  1. I haven’t even heard her talk about football yet and she’s already more interesting than Wynalda and McBride.
    Just hope Gus Johnson isn’t sending her his “Premiere” league notes!

    1. Knowledge of what, exactly? Hard to believe she has any talent when the harsh and irritating voice is shouting crap about racing that she obviously knows more than NOTHING about.

  2. Judging by that picture, i dont think i care if she knows her soccer . . .

    But come on Andre, shes got nothing on Kate Upton.

  3. I agree with Pete Q above. Good looks. All the knowledge of Gus Johnson without the long-standing reputation or experience.

    Way to go, Fox. More contempt for football fans. The continued NFL-ization of the broadcasts and presenters is going so well. We just need a robot to dance around the bottom of the screen.

    1. Does anyone at Fox see the decision making going on at NBC? See how they are hiring professionals and being creative to promote the sport (i.e.- the Jason Sudeikis video)?

  4. Fox is incapable of selecting talent for these roles- the collection of goofs that they had on Fox Soccer Report was brain numbing- I don’t think you can work for Fox without either a Fauxhawk or have a voice like nails on a chalkboard- they assume the viewer is dumb

  5. By selecting one blonde after another for their sports jobs, Fox invites comments about their looks, because it seems the only reason they were selected.

    So here goes- Stewart-Binks’ mouth is frighteningly large. I’m reminded a bit of the Joker.

  6. Well seems that Fox will do anything to attract viewers. Little concern as long as their production values are good. Why are we surprised since the Fox News Babe has been a staple of the Fair and Balanced channel for a long time.

    More importantly after a lot of concern by the readers here for months FOX Soccer is really just being absorbed and expanded in essence by the new Fox Sports 1, 2, etc. After its all said and done the American Soccer viewer has come out the winner.

  7. another Canadian to Help Fox continue with its USA branding of soccer …

    Essentially… Mimbo out ….. Bimbo in

    I won’t waste my time


      1. I’m sure she has taken the Gus Johnson accelerated training course Fox now requires on all new talent. In that case I guess we all will be fine.


        1. LOL, such unfettered sexism here.

          You people do know she worked at Sky Sports in London, right? And yet she’s Gus Johnson. OK.

          1. Sky Sports, credibility..ok we all miss it…but let’s be honest…Men just miss the soccer highlights, highlighted by Olivia Godfrey, et all.

          2. Yes she was an intern at the news desk.. On camera talent no.. Two years in London.. Yes nice start… Does she know the offside rule? Doubt it.. But then neither does Gus..

            If Six months as an intern and living in London for two years now prepares you to be the face of the USA’s national flagship soccer program.. Then good on you Fox.. Sorry.. I’ll watch the grisled Craig Burley for my fix..but then again I’m sure Fox will give her five years to get better.


    1. I’ll give you a thumbs up for reminding me of the beauty that is Charlie Webster but a thumbs down for relegating her for Julie. Shame on you!
      BTW..Charlie Webster is 2nd division compared to Millie Clode. Damn I miss Sky Sports!

  8. Who cares? It’s not like I’ll be watching that turd of a station anymore anyway. You’re dead to me, Fox.

    1. Yes .. This is the attitude I’m taking with Fox.. I cannot and will not trust them.. My Champions League viewing will strictly be via Internet.. I won’t ever turn on a game with their basketball announcer at the mic.. Footy to Fox is filler for them.. Nothing more.. They are trying to sensationalize the ratings for their World Cup.. Which is fine.. But I won’t let them ruin European football for the next five years with their idiots in training.


      1. Cantona
        I am ready to run thru a wall for you. Your spot on to the fox fiasco and Footy. What they did last year was obscene. They will probably screw the Shield with the screamer at the mic hello Talksports.

  9. If Stewart-Binks was able to master the names of hockey players in Saskatchewan, she should be able to take on the names of Europeans etc. I googled her and she has much more experience than the writer has mentioned. He seems to be worried that she has blonde hair. Some people are born with it.

    1. Georgie Binks, why would you google your own child? You obviously know her experience without having to pretend to be a sports fan.

  10. For those of you who have forgotten about JSB’s history (probably not “Cantona”)…

    This clip comes from the archives at 201 Portage Ave. in Winnipeg:


    You can count for yourself the number of names JSB butchered during one of her few on-camera appearances at the anchor desk of FOX Soccer Report.

    (Hint: German and Dutch names are NOT her forte.)

    Not surprisingly, JSB left for CKCK-TV (CTV) Regina shortly after that debacle.

    Hopefully, JSB can at least get the names right now that she now works for the 3-letter outfit in L.A. That should not be too much to ask.
