Samantha has been a journalist and broadcaster for more than 20 years – she is currently presenting on BBC World News where she covers international events of the day.

She presented on Sky News for more than a decade anchoring coverage of some of the biggest stories of recent years.  These included the murder of British MP Jo Cox, the EU referendum live from Gibraltar, several general elections and the terror attacks in Tunisia and Brussels. She also broke the news of the sudden deaths of Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse and Heath Ledger.

Samantha’s highlights while at Sky including presenting on location at Buckingham Palace for the Queens’s 90th Birthday, at the Olympic Park for the London 2012 opening ceremony – her husband was in fact one of the volunteers in the ceremony! She also loved presenting from outside Buckingham Palace during the royal wedding – reporting on “The Kiss” and interviewing people who had travelled from all over the world to be there.

Samantha loves the challenge of handling live breaking news and dealing with the biggest events of the day – interviewing senior politicians, business leaders, celebrities and ordinary people often at the centre of shocking events.

On the BBC and at Sky Samantha’s more relaxed presentation skills can be seen  when hosting the evening paper review. It allows her the opportunity to demonstrate a chattier more informal style of presenting – discussing and dissecting stories of the day, often having to act as referee between guests with very opposing views.
