Ambassadors

Love You is honoured to introduce you to our amazing Ambassadors who proudly support our philosophy and values.

Yvonne Sampson

Yvonne Sampson is smart, sophisticated and loves her rugby league. She started her media career on the Sunshine Coast with Seven Local News. During her time with the network, Yvonne was rapidly becoming a highly trusted sports presenter and reporter. Upon leaving in 2010, Yvonne joined Sky News Australia in Sydney for 2 years. However, in 2012, the lure of returning to QLD was too good when she joined Nine Network. In 2013, she started hosting rugby league games in Queensland.

2014 saw Yvonne return to Sydney to take a more active role within the Wide World of Sports program. Shortly after her return she was elevated to one with an increased coverage of sport for Nine News Sydney, hosting Nine’s Friday Night Football and a regular sideline commentator for Nine’s rugby league coverage.

In 2015, Yvonne hosted Footy Classified NRL Finals, which was the springboard for her progression to hosting the Sunday Footy Show. To cap off her outstanding achievements, Yvonne became the first female to spearhead the coverage of Nine’s State of Origin series.

In 2017, Yvonne has made the move to Fox Sports where she is spearheading FOX SPORTS’ coverage of NRL as the face of the new FOX LEAGUE channel. Yvonne will host Thursday Night League, Super Saturday and the all-new weekly entertainment show, League Life.

Mieke Buchan

Mieke Buchan is a chatterbox. She’s the first to admit it, but luckily, she’s also a pretty good listener.
This talking-listening combo turned into a 20 year (and counting) media career that has taken her, quite literally, all over the world (and made her passport very colourful).

A television presenter for American, Australian, European and Asian networks, she has now added ‘AM talkback radio host’ to the list of gigs that are apparently considered ‘work’, chatting it up on the Talking Lifestyle stations (previously 2UE & co). ‘Mieks’ is also an outrageously honest columnist and confidence-boosting media trainer.

In the Sports TV arena, Mieke has reported from the sidelines of 5 Super Bowls, the grandstands of tennis tournaments, the pits of Nascar, the greens of celebrity golf events (Justin Timberlake can PLAY!) and the tarmacs of the Red Bull Air Race World Series. Her programs have been seen on FOX Sports, Tennis Channel and ESPN in America. In Australia she’s co-hosted panel chat program Clubhouse on Seven Mate with Bill Woods, anchored the weekend edition of SBS’ World Sports and worked with soccer legends Les Murray and Johnny Warren on the the Korea-Japan World Cup, the World Game and On the Ball.

Mieke’s mantra is – jump off the cliff and build your wings on the way down (in this case, metaphorically.)
