Natasha Kaplinsky Joins Five News

Channel  News Election

Natasha Kaplinsky has joined five News as a replacement to Kirsty Young.

Kaplinsky will present the main 5.30pm and 7pm news bulletins. Her first broadcast will be in 2008. Natasha’s recruitment is part of a plan to refresh and relaunch Five’s pioneering news programming.

Natasha Kaplinsky said: “After five incredibly rewarding years at the BBC, I found the chance to work with the team at Five too exciting to pass up. Chris Shaw has an unrivalled track record in reinventing television news and I already know how talented Jay Hunt and David Kermode are, having worked with them at the BBC. Five has changed the face of news before, and now they’re going to do it again. I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Five News Editor, David Kermode, said: “Natasha is one of the brightest stars in broadcasting and I’m absolutely delighted that she’s joining Five News. She’s a great communicator, and has a really distinctive style that sets her apart.”
