Robert Nisbet is Sky News Europe Correspondent based in Brussels. He took up the post in August 2011 after four years in the Sky News Washington bureau where he covered the election and inauguration of Barack Obama, the death of Michael Jackson, the earthquake in Haiti and the rescue of the Chilean miners.
