AL JAZEERA INTERNATIONAL ANNOUNCES SHIULIE GHOSH AS NEWS ANCHOR AT THEIR DOHA HEADQUARTERS

24 July 2006 - Al Jazeera International, the new 24-hour English-language news and current affairs channel, headquartered in Doha, announced today that they have appointed renowned correspondent Shiulie Ghosh as news anchor at their Doha headquarters.

Shiulie joins a large team of diverse on-screen talent based around the world at the channel's broadcast centres: from Ghida Fakhry and Dave Marash at their Washington DC centre, to Veronica Pedrosa and Teymoor Nabili in Kuala Lumpur through to Felicity Barr and Stephen Cole and at the channel's London broadcast centre.

Speaking on Shiulie's appointment from the channel's headquarters, Director of News, Steve Clark said, "I am pleased to have Shiulie on board. She brings a wealth of experience in news reporting to the channel and is a great addition to the team."

"I'm thrilled to be joining Al Jazeera International and to be part of this exciting television project which will balance the information flow from South to North, bridging cultures for English speakers around the world," said Shiulie Ghosh.

Shiulie joins Al Jazeera International from ITV News where she was a correspondent and a presenter covering a range of major events around the world. Her reporting from Thailand on the Asian tsunami was awarded the 2006 Alfred I. Dupont Columbia News Broadcasting Award. During the conflict in Kosovo, Shiulie was based in southern Italy, where she reported on the bombing missions flown by NATO crews.



She secured the first television report from the British aircraft carrier HMS Invincible heading for action off the coast of Montenegro. Post-conflict, she reported on the continuing tensions in the divided town of Mitrovica.



Shiulie first joined ITV News as a general reporter in January 1998 and later spent three years as Home Affairs Editor of ITV News. Shiulie has covered a wide range of prominent domestic stories for ITV News including the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry, the May Day disturbances and the death of the Queen Mother.

In 2001 Shiulie was named Best Television News Journalist at the British Telecom Ethnic Multicultural Media Awards.

Her journalistic career began in 1989 when she joined BBC Radio

Cleveland as a programme assistant. In 1990 she became a news trainee at the BBC and went on to report for BBC's East Midlands Today. By 1991 Shiulie was regularly presenting their half-hour news slot - one of the youngest people ever to do so. In 1993 she joined the BBC's Country File programme as a presenter and this was followed by a move in 1995 to Newsroom South East as a reporter/presenter.

Shiulie was born in the UK and spent the early part of her childhood in India with her family. When she was five the family returned to the north-east of England where she was raised and educated. She has a BA (Hons) Law degree from the University of Kent.
