Rageh Omaar has just been appointed a special correspondent and presenter at ITV News.
In his new role he covers a broad range of news stories and produces special in-depth reports from all around the UK and further afield.
His three part 60 minute series for BBC Vision Productions on the Ottomans will see Rageh travel to Turkey and across the Middle East. It will air sometime in 2013.
Whilst working for the BBC, Rageh rose to prominence in 2003 as the BBC's 'Man in Baghdad'; his reports from the beleaguered Iraqi capital became a regular feature on news bulletins in the UK and around the world. He went on to win a Peabody Award and a BAFTA for his reports from Darfur and Kabul.
