Nick Watt is a London-based correspondent for ABC News. His first story as a reporter was the U.S. Marines' assault on Fallujah in November 2004, for which he won an Emmy. In December 2005, he covered the Asian tsunami from Sri Lanka, Banda Aceh and Thailand.

Watt regularly reports from Iraq and around the globe for ABC News broadcasts and platforms, including "World News with Charles Gibson," "Nightline" and "Good Morning America." When in Britain, he also covers the royal family for "Good Morning America."

Watt joined ABC's London bureau in 1997 as a desk assistant and tape librarian. He became a producer in 2000 and in September 2001 was sent to northern Afghanistan shortly after the attacks of 9/11. As a producer, Watt covered the 2004 parliamentary crisis in Iran, the civil war in Liberia, the humanitarian crisis in Darfur, and the school siege in Beslan, Russia. He won an Emmy for his work in Darfur.

Watt has worked extensively in Afghanistan and Iraq. He spent four months in Baghdad in the lead-up to the 2003 invasion and since then has returned on numerous occasions as a producer and correspondent. He embedded as a cameraman/producer with the First Cavalry Division in Sadr City during the handover of power in June 2004. Five months later, he was part of a two-man team embedded with a Marine infantry unit during the assault on Fallujah.

Prior to joining ABC News, Watt was a reporter at The Southampton Press newspaper in New York. Watt, who is Scottish, earned a master's degree in modern history from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, specializing in post-war U.S. foreign policy.
