Alex Crawford OBE is Special Correspondent for Sky News and a four-times winner of the Royal Television Society Journalist of the Year award.
Alex is based in South Africa and reports across the continent and is deployed to big stories around the world. Formerly based in Sky’s Dubai bureau, Alex has reported on the Gulf and the Middle East, most recently covering the Arab Spring uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain and Libya.
Alex was awarded the OBE in the Queen's, 2012, New Year honours list.
Alex was the first reporter to broadcast live from Green Square as rebel forces took over Tripoli. Arriving in the capital on the back of a truck with a rebel convoy, Alex’s reports were broadcast to the world via a manually operated satellite signal and a camera plugged into the truck's cigarette lighter socket.
Alex and her team were the only journalists to get inside the besieged town of Zawiyah when it was attacked by pro-Gaddafi forces. It was this report that was credited with largely being responsible for the UN agreement to a no-fly zone over Libya.
Following her reports on the Mumbai terror attacks from outside the Taj Hotel in November 2008, coming under fire live on air, Sky News was shortlisted for a Bafta and won the coveted international Golden Nymph award for News Coverage.
Her work has been recognised by the Foreign Press Association in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. She has been cited in the Bayeux War Correspondents Awards for her reports from hostile environments every year since 2007.
Alex is married and has four children.Hide Profile
