Katty Kay

U.S. Special Correspondent for BBC Studios, Award-winning Journalist, and Bestselling Author

In a world reeling from wars and conflict in Ukraine and the Middle East, an economy in flux, and an unprecedented 2024 election season approaching in the U.S., Special Correspondent for BBC Studios Katty Kay brings a deeply informed perspective to the state of American politics, the economy and global affairs.

Kay is an award-winning journalist whose instinctively global perspective on American politics and global affairs comes from having lived and worked in the Middle East, South Africa, Japan, Europe, and the U.S. throughout her career. Now Washington-based, Katty Kay has been with the BBC for nearly 30 years as a reporter and lead anchor, reporting on six U.S. presidential elections, Washington politics, financial crashes, world trouble spots, sex scandals, global affairs and much more.

As U.S. Special Correspondent for BBC Studios, Kay hosts TV documentaries from both the U.S. and Europe, presents her own podcast series, and writes a weekly column. She also provides lead coverage of major news events, like the upcoming 2024 U.S. Presidential elections. From the state of democracy and the rise of nationalism to global politics and power shifts, Kay’s veteran perspectives help audiences see the world from a new angle.

Kay is a regular contributor and substitute host of Morning Joe on MSNBC, and she writes on the art and science of self-assurance in women and girls. She is co-author of four New York Times bestsellers, including The Confidence Code, The Confidence Code for Girls, Womenomics and Living the Confidence Code.
