Sherine Tadros is a broadcast journalist, currently working for Al Jazeera English.
Tadros is based at the Al Jazeera English main broadcast centre in Doha in Qatar. She is a news anchor on the flagship programme Newshour. Previously, she was the channel's correspondent in Gaza.
Tadros graduated with a degree in Middle East politics, and then took a master's degree in the same field.
During the 2008–2009 Israel–Gaza conflict, Tadros and her Al Jazeera colleague Ayman Mohyeldin were the only journalists for the English-language news media reporting from inside Gaza. Foreign press access to Gaza was barred, both by Israel and by Egypt. However, as Al Jazeera English was unique, among English-language broadcasters, in maintaining a bureau in Gaza, Tadros and Mohyeldin were already inside the territory, and familiar with their turf, when the conflict began. They were therefore able to provide an original and important record of the conflict, unmatched by the rest of the global media.
In 2011, she also accepted, on behalf of Al Jazeera English, a Peabody Award presented for the coverage of the "Arab awakening".
