A quick Google search reveals AnJali Rao is an alumni of Cobham School, Cobham, Surrey.



See: http://www.cobhamhall.com/pastPupils.htmhttp://www.cobhamhall.com/pastPupils.htm>



This (Private) Boarding School is an "International School" hosting young people of many nationalities - so I suspect either AnJali was sent away to Board in the UK, or perhaps her parents were resident in the UK and sent her there for a rounded International education ?



I noticed AnJali on Sky News overnight last week. I'm already a fan and find I watch the News longer when she is presenting!



I was taken with her natural friendliness towards the camera, her top presentation skills and, ummm, errr, not to mention her stunning good looks which got my attention in the first place ! She's a natural, the camera loves her (or is it just me then ?! ) and I would tip AnJali for the top, from what I've seen so far!



Sigh, alas it looks as if AnJali is married (spot that HUGE encrusted Diamond Wedding ring!), and expecting a child, from other reports I have read here, else I'd be asking how to contact her ! Her partner is a lucky man!



P.S. If anybody wants to start an AnJali Rao Fan-site/thread, then please do! Or post here any other information people have on AnJali's career at Sky News or formerly at StarTV(which is a Sky group company) here.



If not seen already, AnJali's Profile (tbs) and Pictures are here:

http://skynewscentre.co.uk/viewpictures.asp?showsub=images/AnjaliRaohttp://skynewscentre.co.uk/viewpictures.as...mages/AnjaliRao>



I have to say though, the static Pictures don't do her justice !



Cheers, Phaedrus (an enchanted male viewer!)

I'll gladly host it if/when you make a good site about AnJali and/or Natasha. You should get a decent domain though, as I'd think http://www.mel-ler.dk/natashaandanjalihttp://www.mel-ler.dk/natashaandanjali> would be a sorta stupid address

I've been a fan of Anjali Rao since I lived in Indonesia from 2000-2002 doing media research, and we watched her on Star TV's nightly news. We all fell in love with her, especially her posh accent and smart outfits, although we discovered she only had about 4 of them that she rotated. From the photos they've put up, it looks like she's bought a few more, or at least the same clothes in new colors. I'm in the U.S. now so I can't see the lovely Anjali deliver the news anymore -- Is Sky News in Australia? Perhaps I could get it from my satellite provider.



I thought about creating a fan site at the time, as I couldn't find anything on the Internet about her, and my inquiry to Star News actually wound up being answered by Anjali herself. She was extremely gracious and polite, and I exchanged a few emails with her, but quickly said my good-byes for fear she'd think I was some sort of stalker (the person who'd forwarded my original email to her had included the note "HANDLE THIS!!!" with it). I was amazed that it was apparantly one of the first pieces of fan mail she'd received. She mentioned that Star News forbade me from starting a fan site, to which I replied that I really didn't need their permission, but since I had no other way of getting decent images of her, etc., I never followed up. Anjali herself seemed open to the idea, but couldn't go against her employer, or so it seemed.



In any event, based on my brief contact with her, she's as brilliant and lovely off-screen and on, so I encourage you to create a fan site. I'd certainly visit to get the latest news on Ms. Rao's career!

Thanks for the info. IndoMedia. Can you summarise your brief email discussion with AnJali ? Did she say anything about her career, what she was looking to do, or anything else you might think we'd find interesting ? Although I found she is an ex-alumni of Cobham Hall school, http://www.cobhamhall.com/pastPupils.htmhttp://www.cobhamhall.com/pastPupils.htm> did she say where she is from originally ?



I too do not want to appear as a 'nutter' - I'm just interested ! I suppose this is the curse of people who appear on TV - their viewers feel they 'know' or have some right to ask about the people they see... I think studies show that if you watch TV, you often see more of the "friendly faces" on the TV than other "real" people, so it can be understandable.



N.B. You said "the pictures they've put up of her" - you should be aware that the pictures at the skynewscentre are NOT from Sky - SkyNewscetre.co.uk is a FAN site itself - very professionally done by Tom (webmaster) - but I note that



http://skynewscentre.co.uk/viewpictures.asp?showsub=images/AnjaliRaohttp://skynewscentre.co.uk/viewpictures.as...mages/AnjaliRao>



I think you would be able to see Sky News (and AnJali ?) via the Sky News Australia service, becuase of the following;



AnJali was on again overnight here last night (Sky News UK via Freeview terrestrial digitalTV service) . During her stint, at one point she said: "... and we now welcome Australian and <(other country I forget - possibly New Zealand?> viewers to our service."



So it looks like the lovely AnJali can be seen on all Sky services when they offer the service to their sister channels!



Also - I notice that the skynewscetnre.co.uk site lists her name as AnJali Rao - i.e. capital 'A' *and* capital 'J' in her first name - very interesting/unusual! Do we know where this originates from ?



Finally, other threads/replies indicate AnJali is pregnant at the moment, Is this correct ?( this explains why she is wearing a number of "chinese mandarin-style" jackets to hide the bump a little, I think. Last night was a white scalloped-neck jacket - very classy! Anyway, that's enough detail there, I think !



Any information on the rise and rise of AnJali, who I think is a future TV news 'star' is most welcome here!



Cheers, P. (UK)



P.S. I'm amazed that was the first fan email she'd received at Star TV - do you think she has received any while now she ins on Sky TV UK ? How would we contact her - via mailto:news@sky.com possibly ?
