Emma Alberici

Presenter, Lateline
Emma Alberici is the presenter of ABC's Lateline Program. Prior to taking up her latest role, Emma spent four years as the Europe Correspondent for the ABC based in the UK. She arrived in London just as Lehmann Bros was collapsing and as the world began questioning every accepted orthodoxy attaching to global financial markets. For someone who had spent most of the previous two decades as a business and finance journalist, it was a case of right place, right time. She covered the GFC from London Greece and Italy .. from being tear gassed in Athens during the riots to attending the G20 Summit in 2009 which was also Obama and Clinton's first appearance on the world stage as President and Secretary of State. Emma's first story as Foreign Correspondent was the heart breaking search for Britt Lapthorne - the 21 year old Melbourne backpacker who went missing and was later found dead in the sea off the coast of Croatia. She covered the election that brought David Cameron to power in coalition with Nick Clegg from the Liberal Democrats and was key to a number of ABC exclusives during the phone hacking scandal that saw the demise of The News of The World. Given her fluent grasp of the Italian language, Emma reported extensively from Rome, covering the phoenix like Prime Ministership of Silvio Berlusconi. She was also one of the first foreign journalists on the scene after the earthquake at L'Aquila. Emma worked at the Nine Network for ten years and did her cadetship before that at News Limited's Herald Sun Newspaper .. joining in the year the papers merged. The daughter of a greengrocer, born and raised in Melbourne by migrant Italian parents, Emma has been a finalist three times in the Walkley Awards for journalistic excellence. She studied her BA at Deakin and Melbourne Universities graduating with majors in Journalism, Economics & Italian. She is the author of three editions of The Small Business Book. @albericie
