Max Foster is a CNN International Anchor and CNNs London Correspondent.
Foster joined the network in 2005, with one of his first assignments to anchor special coverage around the failing health of Pope John Paul II. He went on to co-host CNN Today with Monita Rajpal and now anchors across the schedule, leading on stories out of London.
Foster has anchored several breaking news events including the collapsing levees around New Orleans in 2005, the Mumbai attacks of 2008 and the death of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 2013. He has interviewed business and cultural icons including Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Stephanie Meyer and George Lucas. His landmark interview with Queen Margrethe of Denmark, for her Ruby Jubilee in 2012, was described by The Times of London as remarkable.
Foster secured the first interview with Prince William after the birth of his son, Prince George, and has reported extensively on all senior members of the British royal family since Prince Williams marriage to Kate Middleton in 2011. He travelled with the couple across North America (2011), the South Pacific (2013) and Australasia (2014) and joined Prince Harry in the Caribbean (2012), United States (2013) and Afghanistan (2013). Foster has fronted several royal documentaries for CNN.
Foster has interviewed every living British Prime Minister and reported from Westminster on major political stories including the handover of power from Tony Blair to Gordon Brown in 2007, the election campaign and hung parliament of 2010 and the parliamentary vote against intervention in Syria in 2013.
Foster joined CNN from the BBC where he had a ten-year career, most notably as a business presenter and reporter for the World Service and BBC Breakfast. Foster reported on the Asian financial crisis, the launch of the euro and his exclusive report on online banking forced one major bank to close down its website.
