Host - Nina Warhurst


Nina has worked in newsrooms for more than 15 years, and story-telling has taken her to Russia, Azerbaijan, Uganda, Brazil, Libya, Israel and the West Bank. But as a Mancunian through-and-through, she most enjoys working for the BBC in Salford where she is often seen on the Red Sofa presenting the business slot on BBC Breakfast, and the Sunday Politics North West.  

As regional political editor she's interviewed the Prime Minister and Jeremy Corbyn three times, and is passionate about challenging perceptions of the North.  She is a versatile journalist; just as comfortable relaying the details of Brexit amendments as reporting on a hotel for ferrets! She loves meeting people and hearing the stories of others.

Nina lives in South Manchester with her husband and two little boys.  They love going to the pub and eating peanuts together.
