For a world reeling from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Washington-based BBC News anchor Katty Kay brings a sorely-needed fresh perspective on the state of American politics, the economy, and global affairs. Katty’s insights reflect a global mindset that is a natural offshoot of having grown up in the Middle East and her work as a journalist in Europe, Africa, and Asia before coming to Washington in 1996.
The award-winning journalist is an anchor for BBC World News where her weekday evening broadcasts provide an update on Washington politics and global affairs to an enormous audience worldwide. Katty is also a regular guest and substitute co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe program. When she’s not busy making sense of the news from Washington and around the globe, Katty writes on the art and science of women and self-assurance – helping them turn thoughts into action to master a more confident mindset. She is co-author of three New York Times bestsellers (The Confidence Code; The Confidence Code for Girls; and Womenomics) and The Confidence Code for Girls Journal: A Guide to Embracing Your Amazingly Imperfect, Totally Powerful Self.
