Former BBC World News presenter Katty Kay is returning to the BBC as US Special Correspondent for BBC Studios.
She will work across documentaries, podcasts and news.
In her new role, Katty will host TV documentaries from both the US and Europe, present her own podcast series and write a weekly column for bbc.com/news.
She will also front occasional BBC news coverage of major events, including the US midterm elections.
Her first documentary project will focus on the fate of democracy in the United States.
“I’m thrilled to join BBC Studios as it expands its global reach,” said Katty.
“I look forward to telling stories in new ways with longer form reporting and documentary projects. This will be an exciting challenge for me and I couldn’t have better partners.”
