Katty was called on by the BBC, and as a correspondent in London then Tokyo, she reported on the economic recession in Japan and on the devastating  Kobe earthquake.

In 1996 she made Washington her home, and took a break from the BBC to work at The Times’ Washington bureau for five years.

She also reported in depth on the huge change in American policy and psychology after the September 11 attacks. Katty was at the Pentagon just 20 minutes after a hijacked airplane flew into the building - one of her most vivid journalistic memories is of interviewing soldiers still visibly shaking from the attack.

Back at the BBC, Katty reports and commentates on international as well as US affairs, including elections, Wall St issues and the White House.

Katty has also written a New York Times best-seller, Womenomics: Write Your Own Rules for Success.
