News Anchor/Journalist

Motivational Speaker
Nisha is one of the main anchors for BBC World News - in her time covering such monumental events as the attacks on the Twin Towers and the fall of Baghdad.
Outside of the BBC studio, Nisha has hosted important discussions such as between audiences in New York and Islamabad at the start of the Afghan was, and between the ordinary folk of New York and the Jordanian capital - Amman. On both occasions the gulf of comprehension between the two groups was striking!
In 1998 Nisha presented BBC World News' coverage of Israel's 50th anniversary of independence from Jerusalem. She was also in Islamabad for Pakistan's 50th anniversary of independence.

Nisha attended the LSE - gaining a BSc in analytical ecomomics. Her first job after leaving university was at Schroders Investment Bank as a graduate trainee. Journlism came with a stint at The Investors Chronicle, before joining  reporter on The Money Programme for the BBC.

In 1990, Nisha went on to report for Panorama, the BBC's flagship current affairs programme, where she worked for five years until 1995. Her most notable work for Panorama was a nine-month investigation into the financial empire of the notorious newspaper baron Robert Maxwell.

Nisha was born in Kolkata, but spent much of her childhood in Mumbai.
