Anna Coren is an Emmy award-winning international correspondent, anchor and filmmaker covering conflict zones, natural disasters and political crises.
For the past 14 years she has worked with CNN covering some of the world's biggest news events -- from war zones in Afghanistan, Iraq and Crimea to natural disasters such as the Japanese tsunami and devastating typhoons in the Philippines.
Her work has won multiple awards including the 2022 Emmy and Gracie (Alliance or Women in Media) for her coverage of child marriage in Afghanistan, which ultimately led to the rescue of the 9yo child bride by a US charity. She has also been the recipient of Royal Television Society (RTS) and Asian TV Awards.
In 2022 she made her debut as an independent documentary filmmaker with 'The Noble Guardian' about Afghan women's rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Mahbouba Seraj.
