Seb Walker is the Middle East Bureau Chief & International Correspondent for VICE News Tonight — the Emmy award-winning nightly newscast from VICE Media and HBO. He’s an Emmy, Peabody and DuPont–winning journalist with more than a decade of experience in international news reporting.

Since joining VICE News, Walker has covered the most important international issues across the globe. In 2017, he was part of the Emmy award-winning team which won for continuing coverage of a news story in a newscast for “Retaking Mosul,” a series of in-depth reports documenting the fight to push back ISIS in northern Iraq. He’s contributed groundbreaking reports from Afghanistan, Gaza, Libya, Iran and Iraq. Recently, Walker landed the first sit-down interview with Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó since President Trump recognized him as Venezuela's president.

Before joining VICE News, Walker was the host of the Emmy award-winning current affairs documentary show Fault Lines on Al Jazeera, covering stories like protests in Ferguson, the CIA torture program, the Arab Spring uprisings in Libya and Bahrain, famine in Somalia, the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq and two presidential elections. Previous to Fault Lines, Walker was Al Jazeera's Haiti correspondent. He arrived in Port-au-Prince less than 24 hours after the January 12 earthquake and stayed more than a year to cover Haiti's struggles with reconstruction, political chaos, and a deadly cholera epidemic.
