Kate Silverton is a highly accomplished, versatile journalist and popular presenter of BBC news, current affairs and entertainment programmes. She has won plaudits for her reporting from Iraq, and is no stranger to conflict, having covered several of the world’s troubled and beleaguered regions, including reporting from the front line in Afghanistan.

Kate regularly anchors the One O’clock, Six O’clock and Ten O’clock news for BBC One and has presented her own weekly radio show for BBC Five Live, debating the week’s topical News stories with expert guests and politicians.

Most recently Kate has been asked to guest present Saturday Live for Radio 4. 

Her wealth of experience on the corporate circuit makes her a popular choice for hosting Award Ceremonies and conferences, bringing personality, warmth and humour to proceedings.

In 2012, Kate secured an exclusive interview with His Royal Highness, The Duke of Cambridge who gave her a rare and extremely candid interview about his anger over the current levels of rhino poaching in Africa. Her documentary drew support and praise from the United Nations teams.

She is an extremely versatile presenter - hosting and appearing in an eclectic range of programmes including 'The Speaker' - a debate show for young teenagers,  World War Two programme 'My Family at War' and 'Propertywatch’, a four part series ,which took the temperature of the housing market in the UK.

Kate also won huge acclaim for her natural presentation and authenticity in the BBC feature ‘Ultimate Wild Water’? overcoming her fear of open water to tackle some of Britain’s most notorious waters by kayak.

She was on the "Have I Got News for You" panel and raced Fiona Bruce on "Top Gear".

Kate is an active supporter of a number of charities including TUSK, Kids Company and has twice taken part in the London Triathlon to raise money for SPARKS childrens' charity.

A keen sportswoman, she presented various events at the Olympic Games with a focus on the Marathon and Road Races.

Kate has travelled extensively throughout Africa and the Middle East as well as parts of the Far East and Europe.   Her journeys, which began as a teenager, were inspired by a curiosity about the world and in particular, areas of conflict.  Her first journey saw her living on a Kibbutz in Israel before hitch-hiking her way across the country to meet people living in the Palestinian Territories - a journey that saw her shot at and teargassed.  She lived with Bedouin in the desert in Egypt and survived being drugged and robbed in the former Yugoslavia.   At 19 she volunteered as a venturer with  Operation Raleigh (now Raleigh International) and travelled to Zimbabwe where she helped build schools, lavatories and contributed to field studies - being charged by an elephant and stung by a scorpion in the process!  These experiences;  immersing herself within hugely disparate cultures around the globe;  have continued to prove the driving force for her reporting both in the UK and abroad.

She is passionate about conservation and has become a clear voice on the challenges that women face trying to juggle a career and motherhood.
