Rosiland Jordan

Rosiland Jordan joined Al Jazeera in 2008 and covers the US State and Defence Departments - in other words, diplomacy and warfare. Prior to Al Jazeera, she covered the White House for NBC News and Tribune Broadcasting.

Rosiland was nominated for an Emmy in 2005 for her work on NBC's 2004 presidential election night coverage. She also won a regional Associated Press award for her reporting on the US immigration debate for a public radio station in 2007.

Among her most memorable moments, Rosiland recalls interviewing then-Senator Barack Obama and his wife Michelle on the April day in 2008 when they realised his win in the North Carolina primary election was tantamount to his winning the Democratic party nomination for the presidency.
