Karen Roberts

International News Anchor

Karen is an international news anchor, currently presenting Africa Live at CGTN Africa in Nairobi. Her broadcasting career began in Hong Kong (before the Handover); and continued in the UK (including BBC, ITV and Sky); followed by work overseas in Doha, Moscow, Beijing and Paris.

In 2004, Karen volunteered and mentored young tv journalists in Mongolia's capital, Ulaanbaatar.
Apart from her time in Mongolia, Karen has offered gentle guidance and career advice on an informal basis.  She recently helped a former intern at her place of work.
In addition to news, Karen is a Parish Councillor (albeit long distance!) in the UK. She has a breadth of knowledge borne from her vast international experience.
And many mistakes made along the way!
