Isabelle Kumar

I am an experienced international journalist and moderator currently living in New Zealand. I am bilingual in English and French.
I am currently anchoring Euronews flagship Euronews Tonight evening news programme. 
I am the presenter and main researcher of Euronews' flagship programme The Global Conversation, where I interview world leaders in politics, business, culture and sport. These are in depth interactive discussions, which have included heads of state and government from Russia, Iran, Colombia, Brazil to Jordan as well as a whole host of European political leaders. I have also spoken to fashion greats Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier as well as sport's legend Mike Tyson. General promo video attached. There are so many interviews to choose from - I will happily send more links upon request.
