Laura Wells

I am a freelance journalist based in the U.S. who, until recently, had covered regional news from Turkey for 7 years for TV and radio networks, mainly in the U.S., Canada, the EU, and Asia.

I started my TV career producing at CNBC in the U.S., then reporting at CNBC World, and later reporting at Reuters TV. After moving to Turkey in 2009, I headed up the English news department at 6 News (now defunct) as well as anchored the nightly news.
