Annita McVeigh, a renowned BBC news presenter and a mother of two, relishes her seventeen years of marriage with Martin Reid. However, she is very reserved about her personal life and doesn't fancy sharing much of her information publicly.

It was at the fifth-anniversary party of BBC News 24 that the journalist first met her partner Reid and fell for each other. The couple later got married in 2004 and has a son and a daughter. As she is not much of a social media person, her social media posts are usually regarding her work.

Moreover, the family of four resides in Hertfordshire, where McVeigh is a governor of literacy at her kid’s school. And, after a long day at work, she spends some quality time at home with her family and unwinds watching some regular tv shows.

The presenter kick-started her career in Northern Ireland in the late 1990s as a BBC Newsline program reporter. Later, in 2002, she began working as a news correspondent for BBC Network news and reported for BBC One, BBC Radio, and BBC News. And since 2006 she has been working as a BBC News presenter.  

From over decades of her service as a journalist, McVeigh might have accumulated an impressive amount of net worth but is yet unknown. However, her salary at BBC as a news presenter is probably around 70 thousand pounds.
