Before joining the team in Glasgow, Catriona worked in Cardiff for BBC Radio Wales and co-presented the Saturday afternoon Sports programme ‘Sportstime.’ She still hasn’t quite mastered those tricky Welsh pronunciations. She worked as a producer across their light entertainment/lifestyle/music output despite the occasional language barrier.
Catriona’s journalistic career began after graduation in 2005. Swapping Edinburgh for London she worked as a journalist/producer on BBC Radio Five Live’s Breakfast programme, where she developed her journalistic skills but most importantly, her aptitude for getting up early.
