Steph also became a host of the Pocket Money Pitch for CBBC in 2016The same year, she started presenting BBC One's Shop Well for Less? alongside Alex Jones. 

Later, Steph joined the BBC Watchdog presenting team from autumn 2016, where Babita Sharma also worked as a news anchor. She also co-presented Can Britain Have a Pay Rise? for BBC Two with James O'Brien.

An outspoken personality by nature, Steph quickly answers and backfires any comments and compliments passed to her. Back in 2012, while she was interviewing the U.S president Donald Trump, he called her beautiful.

To a surprise, Steph backfired the comment and told BBC on 26 October 2018 that Steph has heard better lines in Clun Bongo. Also, she implied Donald Trump to be a creepy man for telling her beautiful.

On top of that, Steph has been entangled to many odd situations. For instance, in October 2018, she appeared at the BBC Breakfast as an anchor by herself.

Usually, Steph alongside her two presenters Dan Walker and Louise Minchin hosted the show. But on that day, she presented the show instead of anchoring which left her viewers confused.

Well, this is not only the situation Steph went through but, she also presented the news program in November 2018 by herself. Meanwhile, her colleague, Charlie Stayt stood outside presenting other news.

The bold fearless lady cannot stay from addressing social issues. In November 2018, the lady presented her dissatisfaction to the mainstream media for not addressing vocational education. After the coverage for 1.5 million people who did their A-Levels, Steph raised her voice in support of the 3.8 million people who took vocational qualifications.

Steph's upstanding nature has made a good reputation of the lady in the eyes of the viewers. Even her viewers are concerned for her when she is not up off to work.

In the mid-terms of January 2019, Steph took a break from her busy working schedule. She was on a holiday from 14 to 25 January, while her fans kept questioning her about her presence in BBC Breakfast. She later confirmed to her viewers through Twitter that she was on a holiday and would soon return back to her TV family.

Steph Reveals ‘Posh’ Presenter Earns More Salary

Steph McGovern revealed The Sunday Times in March 2018 that the corporation has a problem with the class, and that posh presenters earn more than her.

She disclosed that there were lots of women, who do similar work like her but are paid a lot more. Gushing about salary, she hinted that she had only made it to a six-figure. She added, she would have earned more money if she had a posh accent instead of pronouncing north-east twang.

Steph also said the BBC should do more to encourage working-class people into broadcasting.

Later, addressing the gender pay inequalities, the BBC cut the salaries of some of the high ranking BBC TV presenters.
