About Gillian Joseph

Gillian has been presented with a Race in the Media Award from the Commission of Racial Equality and in 2004, won the European Federation Of Black Women Business Owners’ award for professionalism in her field.

Gillian Joseph is one of the UK’s leading news anchors joining Sky News in 2005. Presenting Sky News’ late evening strands, including ‘Sky News at Ten’ and ‘Live at Five,’ she now co-anchors Sky New Breakfast on the weekends.

She has broken several stories live on air including, the death of former Russian security officer Alexander Litvinenko who was poisoned in 2006, and the Amish school shooting in Pennsylvania in which 5 girls were killed before the gunman took his own life.

Prior to joining Sky News, Gillian presented the news on ‘BBC Breakfast’ and on BBC London. She has also worked as a presenter for BBC News 24 and Radio 5 Live.  She presented live on air for BBC News 24 the day Iraq went to the polls in the country’s historic first democratic elections.

She started her broadcasting career with the BBC in Manchester before becoming a radio reporter and producer with Radio Merseyside. During her time in Liverpool, she was one of the first to break the news of the Jamie Bulger murder case in 1993.

Gillian moved to London in 1998, working as a reporter and newsreader on BBC Radio 1. Since then she has reported for the BBC’s ‘Black Britain’ programme, and both the one and six o’clock News, ‘Newsnight’ and ‘Holiday’.

She played a major role in the coverage of the aftermath of the 2004 Asian Tsunami and has reported from locations across the globe. These include the rather tumultuous and infamous 2020 US Election.

She also presented a Sunday morning reflective news show on BBC London 94.9FM and regularly presented for 5 Live.    She is married, has two daughters and a son and lives in North West London.
