Natasha joined the BBC in November 2002 to co-present Breakfast with Dermot Murnaghan. She went on to present the 6 O'clock News until October 2007.  In 2008, Natasha made a high profile move to Channel Five, to host FIVE News with Natasha Kaplinsky.  Natasha's move was a huge success for Channel Five, with the programme attracting over a milliion viewers on the first day.  

In Spring 2004 Natasha showed that she was so much more than just a news presenter when she took part in a new peak-time Saturday night programme called Strictly Come Dancing … she went on to win it with her coach Brendan Cole. She took part again in most of the second series - though this time as co-presenter with Bruce Forsyth.

Natasha hosted the BBC's Bafta red carpet coverage, and joined Terry Wogan in co-presenting Making Your Mind Up, the show which decided the UK's contestant for the Eurovision Song Contest.

Guest appearances have included the Royal Variety Show, hosting New Year Live, BBC-1’s end-of-the-year show and co-presenting the final of BBC-2’s Restoration with Griff Rhys-Jones. She has also appeared as a guest on Have I Got News For You, The Kumars at No 42, Ready Steady Cook, and several episodes of the BBC comedy My Hero - in which she plays a newsreader.

Natasha Kaplinksy worked in the press offices of Neil Kinnock and John Smith before spotting an advertisement for a news presenter with Meridian in the South East. She was taken on to present early-morning bulletins but soon found herself anchoring the station’s evening news magazine. She moved to Carlton in London to host news and current affairs programmes including their flagship nightly news show.

In 2000 she joined Sky News and was a leading member of the presenting team when the channel won a Bafta for Best News Channel.

Her job on the Breakfast sofa teamed her up with Dermot Murnaghan in a daily three-hour live show combining news, current affairs and softer items, where she has developed a reputation for incisive interviewing with a gentle touch where necessary.

Natasha was delighted to be named the Variety Club’s TV Personality of the Year and surprised when her victory in the Strictly Come Dancing was named as Top Entertainment Moment 2004 while the Tric Awards honoured her as Newscaster of the Year. 

Natasha Kaplinsky is one of the most sought after conference facilitators and awards hosts - she adds charm and professionalism to any event.
