In 2006 she was appointed joint presenter of BBC Two's forty year old Money Programme and as one of the BBCs business 'faces', Libby fronted an hour long documentary on China, cheap imports and the impact of mass sea freight on prices in the UK. In addition, Libby presented two hour long editions of the BBC's Outrageous Fortunes series. She travelled to Japan and the US to look at the brand Nintendo and went down South African diamond mines for her report on De Beers.
Subsequently, in a move away from reporting she co-presented the BBC celebrity stock market show Celebdaq with Paddy O'Connell, writing and reporting her own packages and anchoring the show live from the studio. Other celebrity news work includes reporting for Liquid News and freelance work as a film critic for the Sunday Times DVD magazine show and hosting a behind the scenes look at the BBC spy series Spooks.
After a second maternity leave, Libby is now contributing to BBC Three's review of the Noughties, alongside the likes of Rod Liddle and Robert Peston.
Outside of the BBC, Potter has worked as an entertainment news reporter for The Sunday Times The Month DVD, Channel 4, Channel Five, freelanced for Channel 4 News and Euronews and made a series of short films for the charity Christian Aid.
