Italian journalist and media executive, who received the America Award of the Italy-USA Foundation in 2014. She became President of RAI (Italy's national public broadcaster) on 13 March 2003 and resigned on 4 May 2004; she was the second woman President of RAI (after Letizia Moratti in 1994).

In 2005–2006, she hosted the interview program In 1/2 h for Rai Tre, in which she famously interviewed then Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

On 12 March 2006, in the middle of the electoral campaign for the Italian general election, Lucia Annunziata interviewed the then Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who was running for a second term, on her television program In 1/2 h (In half an hour). During the interview, she asked pressing questions about the work of Berlusconi's administration, often interrupting the Prime Minister's statements, which annoyed him to the point that he stood up and left the room halfway through the program, thus cutting short the interview.

The political control board of RAI accused Annunziata of violating the Par Condicio, since that law states the interviewer should keep to a neutral stance during political interviews. She resigned from her job as executive editor of RAI in protest against Berlusconi's conflict of interest.
