Adrian Finighan

Adrian Finighan (born 20 December 1964) is a British journalist, working as a presenter and reporter for the television channel Al Jazeera English (AJE). He is based at AJE’s World headquarters in Doha and presents programmes from there.

Finighan's interest in broadcast news journalism began in his early teens. After leaving school, he was offered the chance to study 'on the job' for a recognised journalism qualification with the South Wales radio station where he had been working part-time since the age of 16.

Finighan joined the BBC in 1988, working at BBC Local Radio as a reporter and producer. He later moved on to national radio, becoming a newsreader on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2 prior to moving into television news by joining the BBC's Business Unit. He later became a regular presenter on international news channel BBC World, as well as appearing on UK domestic counterpart, BBC News 24. He joined CNN International from the BBC in early 2006 and worked there until 2010. He also owns a company with his brother.

Finighan made a short appearance as a news anchor in the movie V for Vendetta.
