Award-winning Journalist and Presenter
Christian is a British writer, journalist and broadcaster, specialising in news and current affairs.
A long time foreign correspondent for the BBC based in Nairobi, Rome, Cairo, and Paris, he is now a News Anchor in London, presenting on major international stories.
Beyond 100 Days - the show he co-anchors from London with Katty Kay in Washington DC - analyses the Trump White House, Brexit and the wider transatlantic partnership.
After 10 years as a foreign correspondent, Christian returned to London to present BBC News.
From Monday to Thursday he anchors the evening show Beyond 100 Days alongside co-presenter Katty Kay in Washington DC. Originally commissioned to cover the first few months of the Trump presidency, the show has proved hugely popular with audiences on both sides of the Atlantic, and is now a fixture on both BBC World News and the BBC News Channel.
Christian has also presented BBC Breakfast from Salford and the evening BBC News bulletins on BBC1.
Christian is an experienced presenter, commentator and host - as comfortable chairing a corporate event as he is on the Breakfast TV sofa or in front of the BBC News cameras.
An incisive presenter, he has extensive experience of moderating debates and chairing conferences.
Personable and eloquent, he brings to the job his experiences and anecdotes from a broad range of genres, from breaking news and election specials to lighter, consumer-focused events.
'Christian was absolutely amazing! We LOVED having him host the Civil Service Awards and we have received nothing but praise for him from our attendees, production team and events team.
He really carried the crowd and set such a great tone for the whole event and we honestly cannot thank him/recommend him enough.
The crowd at this event tend to be quite hard to handle as they get a little rowdy but it didn’t phase him at all – he took it all in his stride which added to the whole experience.
Really please do pass on our thanks as he was fantastic.'
