Maryam Moshiri is a Chief Presenter at BBC News. In January 2024 the BBC launched Maryam’s new show ‘ The World Today’ on the BBC’s news channel, broadcasting to over 100 million viewers around the world. Maryam is also one of the few Chief Presenters at BBC News who presents the national news bulletins on BBC 1.

Maryam’s wealth of experience and expertise makes her a highly sought after conference or awards host, event moderator and chair – uniquely positioned to provide insightful commentary on current affairs.

Maryam began her BBC career at a Business news presenter, covering all the top business stories from economic impact of the 9/11attacks to the global financial crisis. She has interviewed some of the world’s top economists, investors and CEOs, including Jeff Bezos, Reed Hastings and Willie Walsh and was the face of business on the BBC News channel and BBC world for 16 years.

In 2019 Maryam became a main news presenter on BBC World and BBC News, where she covered big events like the Covid pandemic, the War in Ukraine and the death of Queen Elizabeth II and anchored shows like OS, Global and The Context.

In February 2023 it was announced that Maryam was announced as one of five Chief Presenters who would anchor on the BBC’s newly merged TV news channel, aimed at viewers in the UK and around the World.

Maryam is highly motivated and brought enthusiasm, calm and total professionalism to our event. Her knowledge, skills and experience as a news broadcaster meant she was the perfect choice as host for the Hire Awards of Excellence. We needed someone who could add calibre to a live – streamed awards event and be confident in announcing 17 awards categories including winners, highly commended finalists and sponsors. Working with Maryam was an absolute pleasure and we highly recommend her for hosting or moderating any public event.  - Paul Gaze, Hire Awards of Excellence
