Becky Anderson CNN
There is no doubt that Anderson is an outstanding interviewer and she has interviewed most of the world’s senior politicians, decision-makers, and prominent world leaders serving in their respective fields.
She has spent most of her time traveling across the Middle East since relocating Connect the World to Abu Dhabi, during an unprecedented period of turmoil and revolution.
Her team was the first to broadcast from Riyadh after the ban on women driving was lifted. She has hosted special shows from Tehran to Jerusalem, Istanbul to Beirut, presenting a variety of interviews, stories, and packages to CNN International audiences worldwide.

Anderson has concentrated on issues impacting women and young people all across the world.
