Kuenssberg was an employee of the BBC News channel, in addition to Daily Politics and the BBC One bulletins. 

As a result of the frequency with which she appeared on BBC Television in May 2010, a journalist named David Aaronovitch coined the term "Kuenssbergovision" to refer to the time period that spanned the period between the general election in the UK in 2010 and the formation of the coalition government led by Cameron and Clegg.

In September of 2011, Kuenssberg decided to leave BBC News in order to take the newly created position of business editor at ITV News. Norman Smith, formerly of BBC Radio 4, was promoted to fill this role. 

Additionally, she was a contributor to the business reporting segment of ITV's Tonight current affairs programme. On August 27, 2013, she made her debut alongside Alastair Stewart as a co-host for the News at Ten programme.

It was revealed on the 12th of November, 2013, that she would be leaving ITV to take the position of chief correspondent and Newsnight presenter at the BBC, following Gavin Esler in both roles. She became a member of the Newsnight cast and crew in February of 2014. 

Between the UK general election in 2017 and Brexit in 2020, Kuenssberg also co-hosted the BBC's Brexitcast podcast with Katya Adler, Adam Fleming, and Chris Mason. The Brexitcast podcast, which was later renamed the Newscast podcast, was broadcast by the BBC.
