Karen Coleman is an award-winning Irish journalist and one of Ireland’s finest broadcasters.
Her extraordinary career has taken her from the frontlines of Bosnia and the grinding poverty of the Gaza Strip to the hectic world of live broadcasting.
For many years Karen hosted the award-winning Wide Angle radio show on Ireland’s Newstalk radio. During her time presenting this critically-acclaimed show, Karen interviewed an array of fascinating people from Nobel laureates and human rights champions to prime ministers and presidents.
A former BBC foreign correspondent, Karen’s vast experience in international journalism complements her extensive knowledge of European and Irish affairs. She is equally at home discussing Irish issues as she is global affairs and she can talk expertly on both disciplines.
A growing interest in European issues prompted Karen to concentrate on EU stories and today she is the editor of EuroParlRadio which reports on the European Parliament. This gives her unrivalled access to Europe’s power brokers and puts her at the heart of European developments whether it’s the fallout from Brexit or the ongoing economic and financial rollercoaster.
