"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.

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.
