Nici is a presenter and journalist with extensive experience as a news anchor and reporter on both national and international radio and television., which has made her a familiar face around the world. She has been at the sharp end of news and current affairs, anchoring live programmes and bulletins for Sky News, BBC World Television and CNN International over many years.
Some of the breaking stories she has handled are: the first Gulf War, the Thatcher resignation, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Bosnia crisis, the Hong Kong handover, and the death of Diana, Princess of Wales. Such experience makes Nici calm under pressure in any live situation, whilst pursuing an incisive line of questioning. Combined with her sense of humour, this calmness makes Nici an ideal host for both broadcast and corporate productions.
Nici’s other work includes writing and presenting a series of arts programmes for BBC television, presenting the Farnborough Air Show for BBC1 and BBC2, and HARDtalk for BBC World TV. More recently, Nici has produced and presented Crossing Continents for BBC Radio4, and presented programmes and news on LBC 97.3. She has been combining her work with completing an MA in Middle Eastern Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, which gives her a deep understanding of events in that region.
Nici’s live event work includes hosting and facilitating numerous debates for BBC television, from cross-cultural adoption, the Clinton/Lewinski scandal and London Fashion Week, to CNN’s The Media. Among her corporate clients she includes: TEN legal network TV, Volvo, the Abbey and Landrover.
Nici is a keen rower, horsewoman and skier, although she draws the line at changing horses in midstream!
