Since joining the BBC in 1989, she has gone on to present many flagship programmes for the corporation including the BBC News at Ten, Crimewatch, Call My Bluff and, most recently, Antiques Roadshow and Andrew Marr Sunday Show.

Equally comfortable in news & current affairs or light entertainment environment, she has been the BBC's Six O'clock News anchor since 1998, and in February 2000 became Crime Watch's host, alongside Nick Ross. Since 1999, she has also fronted BBC's The Antiques Show.

A former management consultant at Arthur Andersen and advertising executive, Fiona began her career in television as a researcher on Panorama in 1989. She graduated to the role of Assistant Producer over the course of 30 programmes covering social issues, political investigations, financial stories and features on defence, the law, the EU and health. The programme took her across the globe, from Europe, to the Middle East and the USA. After Panorama, Fiona became a reporter for BBC Breakfast News, and in 1993, while reporting on Second Sight, a current affairs programme also for BBC, she won the CNN Best Medical Story of the year award for breaking a story about women having hysterectomies without their consent.


Presenting stints with Public Eye, Breakfast News and World Service TV between 1993 and 1995 brought Fiona to the attention of Newsnight where she became a reporter, and it was from here that she moved to anchoring the BBC's flagship Six O'clock News.

Fiona is an Oxford University alumni and a former scholar at the British Institute of Paris. She speaks fluent French and Italian.
