Nick Bryant appointed BBC's South Asia correspondent in Delhi

NEW DELHI: BBC’s Washington correspondent Nick Bryant who will be the organisations' new South Asia correspondent arrived in the Capital.

Bryant has been at the heart of the BBC's news coverage in Washington for the last four and half years. He has led the organisations' reporting on all the major news events during that time including the 9/11 attacks, Bush's "War on terrorism" and the US elections. He has also reported extensively from Washington on the Whitehouse's emerging and changing relations with India, Pakistan and the rest of South Asia.

Nick says about the assignment, "So much of my time in Washington was spent covering the reaction there to events in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India, it's great to get the chance to report from sharp end of those stories. It's also hard to think of a region where so many of the big geopolitical stories right now have such resonance - from aids to the digital divide, from the war on terrorism to the environment."

Bryant will take up his post next week. The BBC's South Asia Bureau Editor Paul Danahar said, "Nick brings to the post the right mix of a regional and global perspective I wanted for this senior position. The BBC is now in 86 per cent of American homes where there is a growing interest in news from India so his presence here will also help us serve that new audience alongside our large existing audiences across South Asia."

A student of history at the Cambridge University, Bryant did a doctorate on American politics from the Oxford University. A visiting scholar at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, Bryant is currently writing a book on the history of John F. Kennedy's relationship with the civil rights movement for the Yale University Press.
