Susanna Reid

Susanna's been presenting BBC Breakfast since 2004 - alongside Charlie Stayt on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Susanna began her journalism career as Editor of the student newspaper EpiGram at Bristol University where she studied Politics and Philosophy. She went on to gain a Postgraduate Diploma in Broadcast Journalism at Cardiff. Since then she's presented on the BBC News channel (breaking the news of the capture of Saddam Hussein), as well as The Politics Show, The Andrew Marr Show and the Oscars coverage from the red carpet in Los Angeles.

Away from the Breakfast sofa, Susanna's heavily involved with charities. She's a regular contributor to Media Trust, the charity which links other charities to the media industry, and has hosted events for the Myotubular Trust and Voluntary Arts England. In 1998 she worked for three months in Sri Lanka as a voluntary media consultant for a charity which counsels victims of the civil war and operates orphanages and social development programmes. Susanna actively participates in her local primary school, co-hosting the annual quiz.

She's also graced the stage and screen as an actress - appearing with Shirley-Anne Field in Agatha Christie's 'Spider's Web' in 1982, and then in 1985 alongside Harriet Walter, Peter Barkworth, Adrian Dunbar and Derek Thompson in 'The Price' on Channel 4.

Susanna lives with her partner Dominic Cotton in South London. They have three young children: Sam, Finn, and Jack.
