Emily Maitlis

Journalist and BBC Newsnight presenter

Emily Maitlis

Emily Maitlis is one of the most recognized faces on television news. She is part of Newsnight’s core presenting team, recently leading their coverage of President Trump’s election and his first 40 days in office. She combines this role with working alongside David Dimbleby and Jeremy Vine to front the General, Local and US elections. Emily was part of the core news team for BBC’s News Channel and anchored BBC2’s new current affairs programme This Week’s World.

Emily is also a documentary maker and in 2011, secured an exclusive television interview with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, which formed the basis of her much-acclaimed BBC2 documentary, 'Inside Facebook: Zuckerberg's $100 Billion Gamble'. Her other documentaries have been on subjects as diverse as Donald Trump, Nicolas Sarkozy and Barbie. She has also interviewed major political figures such as Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger and Christine Lagarde, as well as all four of the last UK prime ministers. She has interviewed key figures from the world of sport, entertainment, and business - David Beckham, Hugh Grant, George Soros, to name but a handful.

Prior to working in news, Emily was a documentary maker in Cambodia and China. She spent six years working with NBC Asia, initially as a business reporter and then as a presenter in Hong Kong, covering the collapse of the tiger economies in 1997. She also covered the transfer of sovereignty over Hong Kong with Jon Snow for Channel 4. She then moved to Sky News in the UK as a business correspondent, and to BBC London News when the programme was re-launched in 2001.

She speaks French, Spanish, Italian (and English) but, contrary to popular belief, her Mandarin Chinese isn't so hot.
