Elizabeth Ross produces news stories for The World and works closely with the show's foreign correspondents.
Above all, she enjoys producing segments with courageous and captivating storytellers. Some of the most memorable contributors she has had the pleasure of working with include: Erik Weihenmayer, the first blind man to summit Mount Everest; Dr. Nawal Nour, a gynaecologist in Boston who treated African women who had undergone circumcision; and Adela Raz, an Afghan student at Simmons College who was just starting to catch up on the years of education denied to her by the Taliban regime.
Before joining The World, Elizabeth was a BBC Regional News Trainee in the U.K. She produced a variety of television and radio news programs, and investigative documentaries in Wales. She was also a producer with the BBC's East Asia Today program in London, and a freelance producer and reporter for BBC Radio 4's The World Tonight.
Previously, Elizabeth worked for the Far East Broadcasting Company in Manila, Philippines, where she produced and presented a radio newsmagazine show and an educational travel series about one of her favorite parts of the world: the Caribbean.
