Lucia Newman (born February 18, 1952 in London) is a British reporter for Al Jazeera English and former reporter for CNN. In 1991, she received the Maria Moors Cabot prize from Columbia University for contributing to "the advancement of press freedom and inter-American understanding".[1]

In March 1997, Newman became the first United States journalist in twenty-seven years to have permanent residence in Cuba.[2] The North-South Institute praised her reporting and wrote that because she knows several languages, "she can find out things others cannot". Newman is fluent in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. However, after Newman's first news broadcast, Ninoska Pérez Castellón criticized her for not interviewing people who were against the Cuban government. Pérez wanted Newman to show Cuba as a "rogue nation", not as "a normal place".[2]

Newman has reported for CNN in a number of Latin American countries. She reported in Panama. On September 16, 1987,[3] the Panama government expelled Newman from the country after a mob saw her grinning during an interview with Manuel Noriega.[4] Oriega called her a "disinformer".[5] She was a correspondent in Nicaragua during 1985 to 1989 and in Chile from 1989 to 1993.[6] From 1993 to 1997, Newman was head of CNN's bureau in Mexico.[6] In 2006, she departed from CNN and became a reporter for Al Jazeera English.[6][7]

Newman was born on February 18, 1952 in London.[8] She is married to Demetrio Olaciregui, who creates documentaries. They have two daughters, Pia and Laura (Laurita).[9]
