Natasha Kaplinsky is one of the best-known television broadcasters in the UK. From 2008-2010 she hosted Five News with Natasha Kaplinsky on Channel Five. Before being the ‘face of Five’, she worked at the BBC between 2002 and 2007, first co-presenting Breakfast with Dermot Murnaghan, and then anchoring the 6 o’clock News. She has developed a reputation for an interview style that blends incisive questioning with a gentle touch where necessary.

In her earlier career, Natasha worked in the press offices of Neil Kinnock and John Smith before spotting an advertisement for a news presenter with Meridian in the South East. She was taken on to present early-morning bulletins but soon found herself anchoring the station’s evening news magazine. She moved to Carlton in London to host news and current affairs programmes including their flagship nightly news show. In 2000 she joined Sky News and was a leading member of the presenting team when the channel won a Bafta for Best News Channel.

Natasha’s accolades include TV Personality of the Year and Newscaster of the Year at the Tric Awards. She is a patron of the medical relief agency Merlin and The Willow Foundation, which organises special days for seriously ill young adults.

Currently, Natasha is one of the anchors for the ITN network.
