Speakers


Host: Naga Munchetty is a British Indian television presenter and journalist. Subha Munchetty

Naga is a co-presenter for BBC Breakfast on BBC1, however her background is in financial journalism and she formerly presented 'The World Today' on BBC World.

Naga has always had a head for figures - maths was her favourite subject at school - yet it was a love of writing that led to her studying English literature and Language at Leeds University. Naga returned to London to get a postgraduate degree in Newspaper journalism which led to her first writing for the City Pages of the Evening Standard and regular contributions to the Business Section of The Observer.

She soon began reporting for Reuters Financial Television, then worked for CNBC Europe as a Senior Producer before becoming a Business Producer and Reporter for Channel 4 News after which she joined Bloomberg. There she covered stories connected with the health of the Economy - guiding viewers through the start of the credit crunch, the collapse of Northern Rock and the economic downturn that hit Britain and the rest of the world. At Bloomberg Naga grilled central bankers, Chief Executives and Fund Managers.

Away from business and finance, she has a passion for music - she plays the Jazz Trumpet and Classical piano - and is also a very keen golfer.
