Cathy Newman

After years in Fleet Street, with the Financial Times, where she worked as chief political correspondent, Cathy Newman joined the Channel 4 news, where she went on to be the first main female presenter. Since joining Channel 4 News in she has reported on many major events, a result of which she is a household name and regarded by many as the face of the news.

She was also the only broadcast journalist to travel with Angelina Jolie and the foreign secretary William Hague to the Congo as part of a campaign against sexual violence.

Due to Cathy’s direct and assertive approach, her studio interviews frequently make the news and are watched by millions online – including combative encounters with the Canadian academic Jordan Peterson and the former motor-racing tycoon Max Mosley.

Cathy’s book – Bloody Brilliant Women: Pioneers, Revolutionaries & Geniuses Your History Teacher Forgot to Mention –  is about female pioneers in 20th century Britain, and was published by HarperCollins in Autumn 2018. She is described as a brilliant writer, and the book is regarded as a very important book that no school or college should be without a copy.

Cathy also writes about politics for the Telegraph. She was a judge on the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction 2015 and the Red Magazine Women of the Year Award 2016. She is a patron of Kids, a charity for disabled children, and an ambassador for Young Minds.
