Media Masters - Katya Adler
March 01, 2018
A 20-year BBC veteran and respected war correspondent, Katya Adler is still covering ferocious conflict - this time with Brexit. Appointed Europe Editor in 2015 - arriving in Brussels with reservations that her new beat would be dull and uneventful - she instead found herself reporting on Europe’s most turbulent time since the Second World War: the Greek economic collapse, the Migrant Crisis, and the rise of populism. In this in-depth interview, she laments an increasing propensity for European leaders to refuse to go on the record; tackles critics from all sides who accuse her of bias; outlines her personal take on Brexit negotiations, and the likely result; and how speaking five languages is her secret weapon for getting her sources to open up.
