Sian Williams Biography

Williams is a British journalist from Paddington, London currently working as a producer for BBC Worldwide.

Williams has worked for the BBC for nearly 25 years and has hosted Breakfast for almost a decade, making her the show’s longest-serving host.

Sian’s background is in political programming; for many years, she produced daily news and current affairs for Radio 4, her last assignment there being to produce the 1997 Election Night results from Radios 4 and 5. She was selected to be at the core of BBC1’s coverage of the General Election Results this year, and she broadcast for nearly 12 hours, including anchoring three hours of output as the coalition arrangement became evident and David Dimbleby took a break.

One of her first positions was as a reporter and producer in Liverpool, where she spent five years learning the ropes and covering issues like the Hillsborough disaster. She became the Editor of the Day when she joined Radio 4’s World at One and PM shows, although she also produced special one-off programs for the station, such as the day the Beirut hostages were released. Williams also got an exclusive interview with Bosnian Serb war criminal Radovan Karadic and broadcasted from Moscow during the riots when Yeltsin stormed Parliament. She even worked with Bill Turnbull for a week in 1992 while on the radio, following the then-Governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton, as he launched his campaign for President of the United States. She worked as a producer and he worked as a reporter, and the two have been friends ever since.

In 1997, she joined television as one of the editors of BBC News 24 (now the BBC News channel), a new rolling news channel.

She was assisting with screen tests for the new network’s presenters when one unexpectedly dropped out. Sian was instructed to take the anchor’s seat, which she did while wearing a borrowed (man’s) blazer, no make-up, and blue nail varnish!

A few days later, the Head of News gave her the major 4-7 pm presenting slot; after she realized he wasn’t joking, she accepted the job, abandoning her producing career in favor of a career in front of the camera.

Two years later, she was back on the news, this time as a Special Correspondent and occasional presenter for the 6 o’clock news.

Breakfast invited Sian to join in January 2001, and she gladly accepted. She worked as part of Bill’s weekend presenting crew for five years before being selected to join Dermot Murnaghan as the primary weekday presenter in 2004. Sian reported live from the Asian tsunami in Sri Lanka and Thailand, then later that year, the Pakistan earthquake struck, and she spent a week in the epicentre of the tragedy, presenting for all of the BBC’s news shows, from Breakfast to Ten O’clock News.

Thankfully, she’s been assigned to report on happier stories for Breakfast, such as Ellen MacArthur’s return after breaking the round-the-world record, when London was awarded the 2012 Olympics, and Danny Biddle’s heartwarming recovery after nearly dying in the July 7 bombings, when he returned to the hospital to thank the staff for saving his life.

Bill seemed natural to join Sian on the sofa after Dermot left Breakfast a few years ago. Breakfast currently has more viewers than ever before, and they are both ecstatic to be a part of the country’s most popular morning show.
