On camera, as some of the biggest international news stories of the decade broke, Samantha anchored rolling coverage of the mass shootings in Colorado, the death of Michael Jackson; Amy Winehouse; Heath Ledger and the sentencing and hanging of Saddam Hussein.

On location at the Olympic Park during the London 2012 Opening Ceremony, and outside Buckingham Palace during the royal wedding, as well as covering the 2010 General Election – Samantha is at the forefront of current events. Samantha was one of the first journalists from the UK to cover the post 9/11 events on the ground in New York, and was also on the scene of the Edgware Road bombing on 7/7 within minutes.

Samantha’s passion for journalism was born while writing for the Liverpool University student newspaper. She completed a prestigious postgraduate diploma in Broadcast Journalism at City University, and earned her stripes as a local radio reporter in the North of England, then becoming a TV news producer and eventually a reporter and presenter.

As well as presenting and live reporting, Samantha also hosts topical debates with leading experts in their fields. Samantha has a strong interest in helping women in the workplace. She has hosted a women in business event and joined a panel of key female figures - advising women on how to thrive in the workplace.

In Samantha’s free time she loves to indulge the adrenalin junkie in her - parachuting, parasailing , hand-gliding, bungee jumping and formula ford racing - next on the list - a sky dive! And all this alongside raising her young family.
