She worked for local radio and later cable television in Glasgow after returning to the UK, before joining the BBC North East and Cumbria as a trainee journalist in March 2000. For her work as a home affairs correspondent, Kuenssberg won a regional Royal Television Society award, and she also created parts for social affairs editor Niall Dickson.
She became the BBC’s Chief Political Correspondent in 2009. Kuenssberg worked for the BBC News channel, Daily Politics, and BBC One bulletins. In May 2010, her appearance on BBC Television was so common between the 2010 UK general election and the creation of the Cameron–Clegg coalition that journalist David Aaronovit dubbed her “the Queen of the BBC.”
Kuenssberg left BBC News in September 2011 to take up the newly established job of business editor at ITV News and was succeeded by Norman Smith from BBC Radio 4. She also contributed to ITV’s Tonight current affairs strand’s business reporting. She made her debut co-hosting News at Ten with Alastair Stewart on August 27, 2013.
On November 12, 2013, it was reported that she would quit ITV to join the BBC as a chief correspondent and Newsnight presenter, succeeding Gavin Esler. In February 2014, she joined the Newsnight crew.
She was named the BBC’s political editor in July 2015, making her the first woman to hold the role. Kuenssberg was responsible for arranging for Labour MP Stephen Doughty to officially announce his retirement as a shadow foreign secretary on Daily Politics in January 2016.
Seumas Milne, the Labour Party’s director of communications, filed an official complaint about the incident, which was dismissed by Robbie Gibb, the BBC’s head of live political programs at the time.
In December 2016, Kuenssberg claimed that during a private lunch at Windsor Castle, the Queen made comments in favor of leaving the European Union, according to a source. She didn’t want to report the issue at first.
Kuenssberg was named Broadcaster of the Year by the Political Studies Association in November 2016. The award was given in honor of her contribution to public knowledge of politics, particularly in the aftermath of the EU Referendum in June 2016 and subsequent events.
Kuenssberg was named Journalist of the Year at the British Journalism Awards, which were hosted by Press Gazette in December 2016.
The judges stated, “Kuenssberg deserves this prize for the sheer volume and scope of reporting on some of the most significant events ever in British politics,” citing her coverage of the EU membership referendum and its aftermath in particular.
