Karin Giannone is a main weekend news presenter on BBC World News

Before taking up her current role Giannone was a regular overnight presenter on the BBC News Channel and BBC World News simulcast.

Giannone’s editorship of ‘Varsity’ magazine at Cambridge led to work experience at Anglia Television. She joined the regional ITV station on graduation in Norwich as a news trainee in 1997, producing, reporting and presenting for regional news bulletins.

In 1999 her language and broadcasting skills helped her land a role as a reporter and presenter for Channel 4’s Football Italia series, where she covered the Italian Soccer scene for a season, flying between the UK and Italy every week.

She returned to Anglia in 2000 as a presenter and reporter, this time for the programme for the east of the region covering Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. She also followed troops from the region for a series of reports from Afghanistan in 2002.

Giannone then moved to London to present a variety of shifts for Sky News, before joining BBC News in 2005. Her work assignments have included a stint presenting World News Today on BBC World News channel from Washington at 10pm EST during July/August 2008.

From 3 March 2014, Giannone presented live coverage on the BBC News channel at the trial of Oscar Pistorius in Pretoria, South Africa. She is now a regular presenter of World News Today and Impact on BBC World News channel.
