Andrew Tuck is Monocle’s editor and a regular voice on Monocle 24. He is the host of The Urbanist, our weekly show about what makes cities work – or fail. Andrew is also the regular sparring partner to Robert Bound each Sunday on The Monocle Weekly and is one of the team of anchors who helm our news shows The Briefing and Midori House. He sometimes even gets up early enough to present The Globalist.
Robert Bound presents Culture each week, showcasing the best in art, music, film, books and media as well playing host to the Midori House Sessions – the home of live music on Monocle 24. He also hosts live shows through the week, ending up on Sunday's Monocle Weekly with Andrew Tuck.

Emma Nelson is a London-based presenter and reporter. Her television work includes time at BBC World News, where she was a correspondent, BBC National News and BBC London. Emma and Monocle 24 chanced upon each other when she lived next door to Midori House and wandered round to offer the broadcasting equivalent of a cup of sugar.
Dom Reynolds is, as far as he knows, the only man to have interviewed both the tallest and smallest men in the world. But his wackier news days at ITV are behind him now and if you can’t find him behind a mic in Studio One, he's likely to be in front of a camera somewhere in the UK for 5 News – or at home in west London.
Andrew Mueller is a contributing editor to Monocle magazine and writes on various subjects for publications around the world.

Canadian journalist Nancy Durham has covered the world as both radio reporter and video journalist, reporting from locations such as China, Africa and Iraq.

Romas Tauras Viesulas divides time between his home in Portugal – taking road trips to Latin America in search of investment opportunities – and London, where he often pays a visit to Studio One at Midori House as a presenter. Radio runs in the family: childhood memories recall listening to Vatican Radio, presented by his mother in her native Lithuanian.
