Natasha Kaplinsky has been co presenting the Six O'Clock News bulletin since October 2005, with George Alagiah.

Natasha moved from co-presenting the BBC's flagship early morning television news programme, BBC Breakfast, which she joined in 2002.

Before joining the BBC Natasha was a co-presenter on Sky News' Live At Five following several months on that channel's early morning Sunrise programme.

Early career

After leaving Oxford, where she studied English, Natasha worked in the press offices of Neil Kinnock and John Smith before answering an advert to present early morning bulletins.

Her talents were soon recognised and within six months she was anchoring Meridian's evening news programme.

Within the year, she was invited to host Carlton's London Today and London Tonight and their political programme Seven Days. She joined Sky News in November 2000.
