Maxine Mawhinney


Maxine Mawhinney was born in Belfast and grew up there during The Troubles. She broke through into the predominantly male dominated Northern Ireland media and rose ultimately to become one of the BBC’s top news anchors. In a career that has taken her around the world in the last forty years she has worked for BBC, UTV, SKY, ITN, GMTV and Reuters. She has lived and worked in Ireland, in Tokyo, in Washington DC, and has been based in London since 1996.

Maxine presented many of the most historic stories of our times. She presented single handedly for the BBC on the night of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales. She was Washington correspondent during Bill Clinton’s presidency. Maxine covered the trial of OJ Simpson. She reported from the siege at Waco, Texas, on the Oklahoma Bombing, and on the first attempt to blow up the World Trade Center in New York in 1993. In Asia Maxine covered the assassination of Rajiv Ghandi, disastrous floods in Bangladesh, and the Aids epidemic in Thailand.

And of course she covered The Troubles in Northern Ireland during the turbulent 1970s and ’80s.

Today Maxine hosts her own global TV interview programme The Moment with Maxine Mawhinney. She is a sought after global keynote speaker, conference host, interviewer, broadcaster, and panel moderator covering health, education, climate, finance, lifestyle, and the media.

Maxine serves on the Senior Faculty at the Karolinska Institute University Hospital in Stockholm where she runs the Leadership and Communications Programme for doctors.
