Karina Carvalho is an Australian journalist.

Carvalho was born in Sri Lanka, and moved to Perth at the age of four.

Career[edit]

Karina graduated from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts with a Journalism major.

After work experience in Perth and Sydney she moved to the UK, where she did work experience with the BBC as a journalist and producer on programs such as HARDtalk, and on assignment to the US.

In 2006, Karina returned to Perth and in 2007 started work with the ABC, initially with casual work in the newsroom before being promoted to role of weekday presenter, following the resignation of Alicia Gorey.

In February 2012, Carvalho moved to Melbourne and co-hosted ABC News Breakfast on ABC 1 and ABC News 24 while Virginia Trioli was on maternity leave. She remained co-host until March 2013. She was one of the last journalists to interview the author Bryce Courtenay before his death and anchored coverage from Brisbane during the latest flood crisis.

In April 2013, Karina was appointed presenter of ABC News QLD replacing David Curnow.[1]
