Anne-Marie Dias Borges



Anne-Marie Dias Borges is a Franco-Cape-Verdean journalist who is fluent in French, English, Portuguese and Spanish and has worked extensively in TV and radio over the past 19 years. She currently works as a Senior Broadcast Journalist and TV Anchor for the BBC in London. 

Her experience in front, but also behind the camera, has enabled her to develop charisma and a keen sense of impartiality which she has been able to showcase during the numerous international conferences and high-level panels she has hosted over the years. Among which are The World Bank's Spring Meetings and the European Investment Bank's Africa Day.
Anne-Marie began her career in 2002 at BBC Afrique radio, in London. During her 9 years at this network, she was voted "most popular presenter" on numerous occasions. In Paris, she worked as Chief Information Officer and TV Anchor for Africa24 TV - "The African CNN"! There, she hosted a weekly political TV debate called "Polititia". The show was watched by millions of viewers each week and as a result, Anne-Marie became a household name in various francophone countries. 

When she is not on air, she likes to contribute to non-governmental and charitable activities, notably in Cabo-Verde where she has organised two successful anti-drugs campaigns, in partnership with the United Nations.
