From there, in 1995, she moved to Central News as a production journalist, reporter and news presenter.
It was during her time here she was noticed by Meridian Television's head of news who poached her (after seeing one of three minute bulletins) to become the main presenter on their night Meridian Tonight programme. This offered enough visibility on a wider stage to be selected as part of the team of presenters which launched the BBC's 24-hour rolling news channel, BBC News 24, a period which would include the anchoring of such stories as the signing of the Good Friday Agreement.
In 1998, Nick Pollard , Head of Sky News, offered Garraway a new presenting role; she joined their breakfast programme, Sunrise, as their main anchor, covering stories such as the Kosovo Crisis , the Paddington rail crash, the Turkish earthquakes and the Iraq bombing.
Garraway has also made numerous television appearances on shows such as Have I Got News For You and The Wright Stuff, and also recently presented Beef Encounter for Channel 4 with Jon Snow – a current affairs special on the B.S.E. enquiry.
The presenter lives in Oxfordshire; her activities include scuba diving, bodyboarding, playing the clarinet, and movie-going. She is a Gillingham F.C. football fan, and is dating Matt Nasir , brother of GMTV Weather girl, Claire Nasir .
