Nina Warhurst has been named the new business presenter at BBC Breakfast.
Nina, who has been a reporter on BBC Breakfast since 2018, will start her new role immediately.
“I’m so excited to formally join the BBC Breakfast team, it’s a programme I have always loved, both as a viewer and as a journalist,” said Nina
I grew up locally, so it makes me especially proud that Breakfast is made and broadcast from Salford. This is an incredibly challenging period for our audiences and I look forward to delivering news on our economy in a way that is clear and inclusive.”
With previous roles at Channel 5, Channel M in Manchester and Russia Today, Nina has also presented for BBC North West Tonight, BBC Sport, Sunday Politics and BBC News during her broadcast career.
In 2017, she took home the Royal Television Society award for Best Regional Journalist.
Richard Frediani, Editor of BBC Breakfast, added: “Nina is already well known to Breakfast viewers, with regular appearances on the famous red sofa.
“She is an award-winning journalist who will add to our reputation for first-class original, exclusive journalism. I’m delighted she will now become a permanent member of the UK’s most watched Breakfast show.”
