Ted Kravitz (born Theodore Joseph Nathaniel Slotover[1][2] 21 March 1974[3] in Hammersmith, London) is a British Formula One pit-lane reporter who works on Sky Sports F1.

Early career

In his university days, Kravitz began presenting on University Radio 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.

ITV

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.

In 2007 and 2008, he presented ITV's British Touring Car Championship coverage.

BBC

Kravitz continued his pit-lane role, alongside Lee McKenzie,[4] as the Formula One coverage moved to the BBC in 2009, and remained in this position until the end of 2011.

Sky Sports F1

In December 2011, it was announced that Kravitz would follow Martin Brundle and others from the BBC to join Sky's Sky Sports F1 coverage in 2012. As part of his new role, Kravitz hosts the channel's weekly show, The F1 Show. For the 2012 season, he was joined by co-presenter Georgie Thompson. In 2013, following Thompson's departure, Kravitz presents The F1 Show with Sky Sports F1's Natalie Pinkham.

In addition to working on The F1 Show, Kravitz was also given a more prominent role in Formula 1 coverage, with Ted's Notebook, a short segment in the show where Kravitz provides technical information from the pit lane, such as problems with cars, technical data, etc. Kravitz is also present for the Formula 1 winter testing. A nightly episode of Ted's Notebook is shown during coverage to provide information on what each team had been doing throughout each test day.

Personal life

Kravitz is an aircraft pilot.

Kravitz has three daughters, born in 2011, 2012 and 2018.

The Kravitz name comes from his mother's side of the family; his parents are Robert and Jill (née Kravitz) Slotover.

Kravitz holds a degree in Politics.[5]
