Emma Barnett

Digital Journalist of the year

Emma Barnett

Emma Barnett is a journalist, broadcaster and technology speaker who is available to book for your event through Champions Motivational Speakers.

Previously voted Digital Journalist of the Year, Emma is one of the most followed British women on Twitter, her use of social media in both the gathering and reporting of news marks her as a cut above many of her more traditional peers.

A multiple award-winning media figure, Emma is the Women’s Editor of The Telegraph and columnist and creator of Wonder Women, an irreverent daily section discussing everything topical from politics to sex.

The section was recognised by the British Press Awards in 2014 and was shortlisted for the Digital Award – the judges described it as “the go-to site for young women” in Britain, which has set itself apart by the “quality of content” and “cheeky tone”.

Prior to this role, Emma presented the 5Live Hit List on BBC Radio Five Live, charting the nation’s top 40 news stories every week, and continues to be a regular guest presenter and documentary maker on BBC Radio 4.

She also worked on LBC Sunday drive-time show, for which she won the ‘Best New Radio Presenter’ gong at the Arqiva awards in 2012. The judges praised her warmth when listening to and interacting with callers.

When not fronting programs, running newsrooms or writing articles, Emma can be found commentating on women’s issues, media, social affairs, technology, politics and culture for ITV, Channel 4, BBC Three, BBC News, Sky News and CNN.
