Christiane Amanpour, holder of Order of the British Empire, is a British-Iranian journalist and television host. She is the Chief International Correspondent for CNN and host of CNN International’s nightly interview program Amanpour. Amanpour is also a Global Affairs Anchor of ABC News. In 2013, she moved from New York City to live permanently in London, England, with her husband, former US Assistant Secretary of State James Rubin, and their teenage son.
“My mother is a Christian from England and my father a Muslim from Iran. I married a Jewish American.” Born in London, England, Amanpour was raised in Tehran. Her father, Mahmoud Amanpour, is a Muslim from Iran; her mother, Patricia Hill, is a Christian from England. She is fluent in English and Farsi.
After completing the larger part of her elementary education in Iran, she was sent by her parents to boarding school in England when she was 11. She attended Holy Cross Convent, an all-girls school located in Chalfont St. Peter, Buckinghamshire, and then, at age 16, New Hall School, in Chelmsford, Essex. Christiane and her family returned to England not long after the Islamic Revolution began. She has stressed that they were not forced to leave the country, but were actually returning to England due to the Iran–Iraq War. The family ultimately remained in England, finding it difficult to return to Iran.
After leaving New Hall, Amanpour moved to the United States to study journalism at the University of Rhode Island’s Harrington School of Communication and Media. During her time there, she worked in the news department at WBRU-FM in Providence, Rhode Island. She also worked for NBC affiliate WJAR in Providence, Rhode Island, as an electronic graphics designer. In 1983, Amanpour graduated from the university summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with a B.A. degree in journalism. She got at least 35 awards in her 34 years career.

Zahawi was born on 2 June 1967 in Baghdad, to Kurdish parents. Zahawi has strong ties with Massoud Barzani, the president of Iraq’s autonomous region and with the radical Kurdish parties which call for Kurdish secession from Iraq as well.
