Samantha has been a news broadcaster for over two decades. She was an anchor on Sky News, and now presents on the BBC News Channel. She was one of the first journalists from the UK to cover the post 9/11 events on the ground in New York and was on the scene of the Edgware Road bombing on 7/7 within minutes.


Samantha Simmonds has been a journalist and broadcaster for more than twenty years. She is a presenter on BBC World News where she covers international events of the day.

Samantha 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 ninetieth Birthday and at the Olympic Park for the London 2012 opening ceremony.

She 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.

Samantha has a reputation for bringing personality, energy, warmth, and humour to corporate and motivational events she hosts or speaks at. Her conference hosting includes comparing the Qatar-UK business investment forum alongside the British and Qatari Prime Ministers, and the regional investment fund forum for the Department of International Trade.
