Alice Baxter

Alice was thrilled to join the BBC in the summer of 2012.

She currently presents a mixture of news and business programmes across BBC World, the BBC News Channel, BBC One and BBC Two.

She can regularly be seen presenting World Business Report, grilling CEOs, CFOs and politicians from all around the world. Interview highlights have included WPP's Sir Martin Sorrell, Lloyds of London’s Richard Ward and South Africa's Minister of Trade & Industry Rob Davies, live from the BRICs summit.

In the news chair, and reporting from the BBC's World Newsroom, Alice has covered a number of breaking news stories in 2013, including the escalation of tensions in Syria, Egypt and Turkey.

Alice has also, on occasion, ventured onto the airwaves to present the business segment on the Simon Mayo show on BBC Radio 2.  

Prior to joining the BBC, Alice worked as a presenter at Sky News and in Moscow as a senior international correspondent and presenter for RT where she anchored major news and business stories for over six years, as well as presenting and co-producing an award-winning Russia travel series.

As a correspondent she travelled across the globe, reporting on a range of political, financial and social-interest stories, including a number of extended features from Greenland, the former Yugoslavia, South Ossetia, Austria and South Korea.

 A history and drama undergraduate, Alice holds an MPhil in modern history from Cambridge University and a diploma in broadcast journalism from Cardiff University.

 Away from work Alice tries to make the most of London's vibrant arts and restaurant scene. A keen traveller and fitness fanatic she also loves to ski and run and cycles pretty much everywhere.
