Zahra Burton is the founder and principal of Global Reporters for the Caribbean, a consortium of journalists around the world committed to raising the bar on in-depth storytelling and investigative reporting in the Caribbean. The Consortium produces 18° Degrees North, a Caribbean focused global news show. Burton serves as host and executive producer.

Ms. Burton is a former New York-based reporter for Bloomberg Television. During her seven-year tenure there, she covered the stock market from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange as well as other major business stories, including the global financial crisis, health-care reform, the BP oil spill and the trial of Bernard Madoff.

Prior to joining Bloomberg Television in 2005, Zahra was a segment producer for NDTP Productions based out of KTLA Channel 5 in Los Angeles. It was there that she earned her Emmy nomination for her contributions to producing a weekly show on local entrepreneurs - Making It: Minority Success Stories. While in Los Angeles, she also served as guest host for The Young Turks, a national radio show focused on politics, sports, pop culture and entertainment.

Burton's inspiration for 18° Degrees North came from her days working as a reporter in Kingston at Television Jamaica. In 2015, she received The Carl Wint Award for Human Interest Feature Stories (Electronic) by the Press Association of Jamaica and was selected as a 2015 fellow at the Reva and David Logan Symposium on Investigative Journalism at U.C. Berkeley.
