Emily Maitlis's 2022 biography

Emily Maitlis’ background

As an experienced newsreader and presenter, Emily Maitlis is able to convey information in a confident, concise and logical way. She can keep an audience interested in her subject and her natural warmth and interest is evident.

Emily Maitlis was born on the 6th of September 1970 in Canada, but soon moved to England with her family, where she attended King Edward VII School in Sheffield. A bright and capable student, she went on to attend Queens College at Cambridge University.

Before starting work with news presenting, Emily worked for six years in Asia, making documentaries for NBC. Her ability to speak multiple languages made her an ideal choice for such roles; she can speak Spanish, French and Italian fluently and can speak a certain amount of Mandarin. In 1997, she and Jon Snow presented the transfer of the sovereignty over Hong Kong on television.

Emily returned to the UK and began to work as a business correspondent for Sky News before moving to BBC London News in 2001. She has also presented BBC Breakfast and appeared on numerous other shows, including STORYFix, a faced paced news bulletin which aimed to summarise the most pressing current affairs.

In 2005, Emily worked on the National Lottery game show Come And Have A Go, on which she quizzed players.
