A regular anchor of many of the BBC’s flagship programmes, Kasia Madera was a continuous and reassuring on-air presence throughout the Covid pandemic.
A BBC News presenter with over 20 years of broadcasting experience, at the start of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Kasia was one of the first international journalists to report live from the Poland-Ukraine border. Of Polish heritage, Kasia is bilingual in Polish and was able to interview many refugees in a mixture of Polish and Ukrainian.
More recently, Kasia anchored BBC News from the NATO summit in Madrid as well as played a role in the coverage of the UK’s mourning period for Queen Elizabeth II.
