Anne Will & Miriam Meckel

Anne Will (born March 18, 1966) is a television journalist from Germany. She was anchorwoman of the daily Tagesthemen news broadcast on ARD from April 14, 2001, to June 24, 2007. (P: Stuart MentiplyAnne Will)

Will was born on March 18, 1966, in Cologne, Germany. She grew up in Hürth, the daughter of an architect. After attending high school at the Albert-Schweitzer-Gymnasium in Hürth, she studied history, politics, and anglistics (English language and literature) in Cologne and Berlin starting in 1985. During her studies she was already working as a journalist at Kölnische Rundschau (Cologne Review) and the Berliner Volksblatt newspaper. In mid-1990, she graduated with a Magister Artium from the University of Cologne and began her career in radio and television at Sender Freies Berlin (now part of Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg).

At the end of 1992, she became more widely known while presenting both the talk show Mal ehrlich and the television sports magazine Sportpalast. At the time, she also hosted the show Parlazzo at station WDR from 1996 to 1998.

Will was the first woman to host the popular German sports show Sportschau starting in November 1999. During the 2000 Summer Olympics, she presented a variety of live sports shows from Sydney, Australia on ARD.

From April 14, 2001, to June 24, 2007, she presented the prime German broadcast late night news magazine Tagesthemen in alternation with Ulrich Wickert and, from September 2006, with his successor Tom Buhrow. Since September 16, 2007, she has hosted her own political talkshow Anne Will, succeeding the retired Sabine Christiansen. Her successor at Tagesthemen is Caren Miosga.


Miriam Meckel is Professor for Corporate Communication and Director of the Institute for Media and Communication Management at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland. Meckel lives in Berlin with long-time partner Anne Will, a television journalist from Germany and anchorwoman of the daily Tagesthemen news broadcast on ARD. Will came out in 2007 at a Jewish Museum event in Berlin when she publicly acknowledged her relationship with long-time partner, Professor Miriam Meckel.

An active contributor to the Kindernothilfe and UNICEF charities, she is also involved in projects aiming to eliminate landmines. She hosted the German stage event in front of the Siegessäule in Berlin of the Live8 on July 2, 2005.

Miriam Meckel, (born July 18, 1967), is Professor for Corporate Communication and Director of the Institute for Media and Communication Management at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland. Meckel lives in Berlin with long-time partner Anne Will, a television journalist from Germany and anchorwoman of the daily Tagesthemen news broadcast on ARD from April 14, 2001, to June 24, 2007. Will, the current host of the top-rated political talk show Anne Will, came out in 2007 at a Jewish Museum event in Berlin when she publicly acknowledged her relationship with long-time partner, Professor Miriam Meckel. “Yes we are a couple,” Will told reporters, “but we would like to keep our private life private.” Nonetheless, their announcement make big headlines in Germany and throughout Europe, both because of Will’s fame, and Meckle’s considerable accomplishments.

In 2001 Miriam Meckel became the State Secretary at the department of the Premier of the German State of North Rhine-Westphalia and government spokeswoman, later on the State Secretary for Europe, International Affairs and Media. From 1999 to 2001 she was a professor for Communication Sciences at the University of Münster in Germany. Her publications include texts on media economics, communication and cyberpolitics - in 2010 she wrote about her experience with burn-out syndrome.

As a member of international jury of the Development Gateway Foundation of the World Bank she was instrumental in designing the Development Gateway Award (Petersberg Prize).

In November 2001 Meckel received the Cicero Award for best speech in the academia category.
