Al Jazeera English
Jane has been with Al Jazeera since September 2005, in the run-up to the launch of the station.
She is based at the main broadcast-centre, in Doha in Qatar. Due to family commitments, she now specialises in studio-based journalism. She is one of the key anchors at the station and her work ranges from news-reading, to hosting studio-based interview programmes and to voice-overs and continuity.
As a news-correspondent, Jane has covered stories in the United States, in Europe and in her native Africa, from South Africa to Egypt.
As the host of studio-based talk-shows, Jane is a regular host of Inside Story, the daily programme that analyses a topical issue from the news, with the aid of guests from inside and outside the country in question. She is also a host for the weekly programme Inside Syria, that analyses recent developments in the war-torn country.
For the strand Talk to Al Jazeera, Jane travelled to interview the famously camera-shy President of Eritrea, Isaias Afewerki, his country's sole head of state since independence in 1991. The interview is an internet favourite as the response to most of the questions was to denounce them as lies, without offering clarification or elaboration.CNBC
