Sophie Benzing

Sophie has worked extensively for radio and television for over 10 years and is one of BBC Radio Five Live's main news presenters, having joined the station in the autumn of 2000.

She was live on-air when news broke of the 11 September terrorist attacks in the US in 2001.

Before life at BBC Radio Five Live, Sophie did stints as a newsreader on both Virgin Radio and Talk Sport. But she says, it was always her ambition to work for the BBC, because of the respect it commands around the world.
