How we put the AIBs 2021 together

Read our backgrounder to see how we showcased the world’s best journalism and factual productions across TV, radio and digital platforms

Host of the AIBs 2021

Kamahl Santamaria is a Principal Presenter at Al Jazeera English (AJE), and a journalist with 23 years experience across the Asia-Pacific and Middle East.

Based in Doha, Qatar, Kamahl joined the AJE launch team in 2005.  In the 16 years since, he has presented hourly news bulletins, the Newshour, discussion   show Inside Story, and – for seven years – the business and economics programme Counting the Cost.

He then became the principal host of the interactive newshour newsgrid – a special edition of which was nominated for an International News Emmy Award   in 2018.

Kamahl has also been the electoral “number cruncher” for the past four U.S. presidential elections, and anchored Al Jazeera’s coverage of the 2021 U.S.   Presidential Inauguration live from Washington DC.  He has reported or anchored for Al Jazeera from 18 different locations in a dozen different countries.

Kamahl’s career began in 1998 in his hometown of Auckland, New Zealand, as a news and sports reporter with the TV3 Network.  After three years he moved to Melbourne, Australia, to work for Sky News Australia on its nightly business programme.
