Kate Silverton

BBC Presenter and Journalist

Kate Silverton is a highly accomplished, versatile journalist and popular presenter of BBC news, current affairs and entertainment programmes. She has won plaudits for her reporting from Iraq, and is no stranger to conflict, having covered several of the world’s troubled and beleaguered regions. Recently she was in Afghanistan reporting from the front line.

Kate regularly anchors the One O’clock, Six O’clock and Ten O’clock news for BBC One and has presented her own weekly radio show for BBC Five Live, debating the week’s topical News stories with expert guests and politicians.

She has presented an eclectic range of programmes, including BBC’s The Speaker, Big Cat Live, My Family at War and ‘Property Watch’, a four-part series, which took the temperature of the housing market in the UK today.

Kate has reported for the BBC’s Panorama Programme and presented the BBC feature ‘Ultimate Wild Water’, winning huge acclaim for overcoming her fear of open water to tackle some of Britain’s most notorious waters by kayak. She has appeared on Have I Got News for You and raced on Top Gear, which she tackled in extremely wet conditions.

She is an active supporter of a number of charities and has twice taken part in the London triathlon to raise money for the SPARKS charity.

Kate is also a keen traveller. Since her first expedition with Operation Raleigh (now Raleigh International) to Zimbabwe in 1990, she has subsequently travelled extensively throughout Africa and the Middle East, most recently visiting Lesotho, Uganda and Oman. These experiences, immersing herself within hugely disparate cultures around the globe, have continued to prove the driving force for her reporting from some of the most troubled and beleaguered areas of the world.

It is this integrity and broad experience in both business and journalism that has enabled her to interview major political, military and show business figures, whilst also chairing conferences and debates for some of Britain’s biggest organisations such as BT, KPMG, The Royal Navy and Transport for London. Kate is very experienced within the Corporate field and regularly chairs and facilitates conferences. These often involve Q&A sessions with CEOs and public figures. Kate presents a number of Corporate Videos for companies and financial institutions – she originally trained as a Corporate Financier with a London Investment Bank. She is also a very popular choice for hosting Award Ceremonies, bringing personality, warmth and humour to proceedings.

After Dinner

Thank you very much for your role in kicking off our Insights conference yesterday. You did a wonderful job, as usual. On, a more personal note, I want to thank you for the highly professional way in which you prepared and then handled our interview. You have the gift of being able to take charge of the audience but make your interviewee feel extremely comfortable at the same time. Not many interviewers can do both.

I have had excellent feedback from the team regarding our Star Awards last week. This is I am sure in no small part due to Kate's performance on the night. She has the ability to be nothing but professional whilst at the same time totally engaging with the audience. She was a pleasure to work with and someone who I would not hesitate in recommending as a conference/ awards host.


Thank you for organising a lovely evening - I thoroughly enjoyed it and found Kate to be an inspiring speaker. She was honest and open and her willingness to share her experiences made for an excellent and informal evening. I also got the impression that she too enjoyed being there and sharing stories and experiences round the table.


A highly professional and intelligent package - with a keen sense of humour and oodles of charm. Kate Silverton held the stage and the audience perfectly - a delight to work with.
