Mishal Husain of BBC World wins achievement award

BBC World news presenter Mishal Husain has been chosen for the Young Achiever of the Year award at the Asian Women of Achievement Awards in London, informed an official statement from the telly major.

“The Young Achiever of the Year award recognises any woman under 30 who has done something incredible or inspirational, or is simply the best at what she does,” read the statement. The annual ceremony of honouring professionally or personally accomplished and inspirational Asian women in Britain, has reached the fifth milestone this year.

Mishal – one of the most familiar faces in the television news category across the world, has been a key presenter on BBC World since October 2000. Reckoned as a successful news presenter in the fiercely competitive television market in the United States, Mishal has been instrumental in establishing BBC World as an authoritative source of television news in the US.

The communiqué quoted Caroline Howie, Head of News, BBC World, as saying: “Mishal is an incredibly able and versatile broadcaster. She combines great personal qualities of warmth and humanity with the highest professional standards and thoroughly deserves to be recognised with this award.”

The UK-born Pakistani is a law graduate from Cambridge University. Mishal was the launch-presenter of BBC World’s Asia Business Report in October 2000, when she was based in Singapore. She returned to London some months later to present the channel’s flagship financial programme, World Business Report.
