Lucy Hockings, News Presenter & Anchor , BBC World News
Lucy Hockings has been a presenter on BBC World News since 2003 covering events such as the Asian tsunami in 2004, the death of Pope John Paul II and the capture of Saddam Hussein.
The channel's rebrand in July 2008 saw Lucy and David Eades brought together for a double-headed presentation at 10.00 GMT. The programme changed from its regular half-hour format to an hour-long show broadcasting more live events and breaking news.
Lucy joined BBC World News as a producer in 1999, before being promoted to senior producer in 2000. Working on the channel’s news bulletins and two programmes, Asia Today and HARDtalk, she was involved in the reporting of major world events such as the September 11 attacks and the Afghan and Iraq wars.
Prior to working at the BBC, Lucy was a producer and reporter in her native New Zealand. She has a degree in journalism from Auckland University.
Lucy loves to travel. One of her greatest adventures was a year-long working trip around Asia, visiting Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Tibet, Nepal and India.
Her other passions include family, food, literature and as many walks on the beach as she can manage while living in London
