Kate McCann is best known for being a political correspondent working for Sky. She is based in Westminster and is renowned for delivering analysis on breaking news and exclusive stories.
According to her bio, Kate was highly commended at the Press Awards in 2017 for her Labour manifesto scoop, the first time a political manifesto had been leaked to a newspaper in its entirety.
She is also a deputy chair of the Press Gallery, a gathering of political journalists from national and international outlets in Westminster, having previously been chair in 2018. She was the second woman to hold the title in over 200 years.
On Tuesday, July 26, the journalist fainted off-camera while hosting a debate between Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak. A loud crash was heard, which left the Foreign secretary horrified, signs that something was off. She tweeted later on that she was fine. The tweed reads, “Well, that wasn’t how last night was supposed to end. Thanks, everyone, for the lovely messages – I’m fine now, and I apologise to @trussliz and @RishiSunak for cutting the debate short.”
