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.

Before he joined Sky News, Robert was a Special Correspondent at BBC News, working mostly for BBC One's 6 O'Clock News as well as Newsnight and Radio 4's Today programme.

He also co-presented the BBC One daytime current affairs programme The Morning Show.

Prior to that Robert was the Chief Reporter on the irreverent entertainment news show Liquid News and he spent several years working for BBC and independent radio.

Robert is a keen cinephile and has reported on film festivals around the world, including the Oscars seven times. He has interviewed stars and politicians as diverse as Mikhail Gorbachev, George Clooney, Prince Harry and three former US Presidents.
