Nigel Pearson is a well-known speedway broadcaster and a member of the PDC Hall of Fame.
Nigel is reportedly dead, as his death news is still a great shock to many, who died at the age of 52.
Nigel, who is known as the long-time voice of darts and speedway died calmly in Lower Parkstone, Poole, with his family by his side, on Saturday afternoon.
Nigel Pearson was born in 1970 in New York and lived in Staffordshire before his death. He was an outstanding racetrack commentator who brought the sport to life for the audience.
Nigel is reported to have always wanted to be a sports journalist and now works as a journalist, radio pundit, and sports commentator for a range of radio and television shows. As a columnist, he also contributes to magazines.
His Kingswinford School career advisor had believed he wanted to join the police force or teach physical education. And he had no notion what he wanted to do with his life when he started my A-levels at Dudley College.
Nigel Pearson has media career spanned six decades, beginning when he left Poole Grammar School to work for the Bournemouth Echo as a newspaper reporter.
He moved on to work for the Daily Mail, TV Times, The Sun and Mirror Group, and ITV Sport in 1965, where he covered Sid Waddell’s famed “Indoor League” program on Yorkshire TV.
Pearson later joined Sky Sports alongside Waddell and John Gwynne to commentate on John Lowe’s first broadcast nine-dart finish at the 1984 World Matchplay event in Slough.
Similarly, he was also in the commentary box with Waddell when Phil Taylor made history by scoring two nine-dart finishes in one match against James Wade in the 2010 Premier League final.
In 2008, the two were inducted into the PDC Hall of Fame, and after retiring from commentary, he continued to follow darts and his first love, speedway, with enthusiasm. May his soul rest in peace.
