You've not seen Rip Off Britain?


I know it's probably not in the spirit of this thread but most of the people mentioned can just be googled.

For example it only takes a couple of clicks to find out that Sonia Ruseler works for a McDonald's franchisee

A few CNN faces:

Fionnuala Sweeney (hope I got the spelling right there)
Coleen McEdwards
Anjali Rao
Monita Rajpal

Sky News:
Lisa Knights
Andrew Wilson


Andrew Wilson went to work for Arise News for a while, but that was a few years ago, he's now an after dinner speaker I believe.

Lisa Knights is the Group Head of Media at Ashton Gate/Bristol Sport according to her Twitter.

Fionnuala Sweeney works in comms for the Global Health Institute I believe. I've come across her name in my line of work.

Ralitsa Vassileva after her CNN tenure ended in 2011, would later return to her former home, Bulgarian International Television as news director. Vassileva began her career at BNT prior to her CNN run in the 1980s during the fall of communism in Bulgaria.
Sonia Ruseler is the Director of Communications for Arcos Dorados (trans.: "Golden Arches"), a McDonald's franchisee group covering Latin America and the Caribbean.

It was 2014 Ralitsa (sadly) left CNNI. Bulgaria International Television is privately owned and was only formed in I think 2015. Her role was based in Chicago. She then went to Copenhagen to work for a think tank, and according to her LinkedIn is now a journalism lecturer at the University of Georgia
