Kay Burley (born 17 December 1960) is an English television newsreader, presenter and journalist. She currently anchors the Afternoon Live programme on the Sky News station.
Kay Burley was born in 1960 in Wigan, Lancashire. She was raised Roman Catholic.
Her first reporting job was at the Evening Post and Chronicle in Wigan at the age of 17.
She worked in local radio and TV, including Tyne Tees Television before joining TV-am in 1985 as a reporter and occasional newsreader.
From 1987, she presented TV-am's first hour, filling in for Caroline Righton and covering Anne Diamond's maternity leave.
Burley joined Sky Television, launching the Sky One Entertainment Channel in November 1988 with her own documentary "The Satellite Revolution". She moved to the then fledgling Sky News in 1988.
Among many noteworthy assignments, she fronted Sky News coverage from Sri Lanka following the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and subsequent tsunami. In 2005, she was prominent in Sky News' coverage of both the General Election and the royal wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.
Burley is also known for presenting news coverage on Christmas morning on Sky News, a tradition that, as of 2009, she has upheld for the last 19 years.

She also donated her appearance fee to the charity. Kay went out of the show in the fifth week following a skate-off.
Before taking part in this series, she had had just three weeks of Bridge lessons, but this may not be the disadvantage that it initially sounds: she’s a fast learner and her inexperienced eye actually leads her to bid well...
Burley is twice divorced and has one son from a one-year marriage to Steve Kutner, a football agent of Frank Lampard.
Burley is a fan of Arsenal, as she revealed in an interview in the London Lite newspaper (April 30, 2009).
