TV

With more than 1,000 live broadcasts under his belt, Colin Stone possesses one of the most unique television showreels in the UK.

Although Colin has recently taken a sideways step away from journalism into the world of presenting, his TV career began at the age of 22.

 

After spells in commercial radio, Colin joined STV Glasgow in May 2014 ahead of its launch as one of the 'faces' of the channel.

 

During his 18-month spell there, Colin reported live from the likes of the 2014 Commonwealth Games, the Ryder Cup in Gleneagles, the Scottish independence referendum (and the subsequent George Square riot), T in the Park, the Edinburgh Festival, the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England and the 2015 Davis Cup. 

 

Colin featured in more than 300 live episodes of The Riverside Show and broadcast more than 750 individual live segments. He also featured in a similar number of video packages, shot and edited on a daily basis.

 

On top of his daily appearances on the Riverside Show, Colin appeared on STV Channel 3 programmes The People's History Show, Scotland's City Safari and Edinburgh Fringe Festival coverage. 

 

Colin joined STV News in January 2016 as a reporter and news anchor. Over the next year and a half, Colin would go on to present live nationwide bulletins on Good Morning Britain, Scotland Tonight and the weekend News at Six. He also continued his outside broadcasts, reporting live from the discovery of 15-year-old Paige Doherty's body in Clydebank, as well as the annual Celtic Connections festival, Scottish Cup matches and the 2017 winter chaos on the railway network.

 

At Radio Clyde, Colin's biggest story came during the summer of 2018 when Glasgow's iconic School of Art caught fire for the second time in four years. His through-the-night reporting saw him broadcast live nationwide on both Sky News and BBC Breakfast on BBC One. He returned for a one-off appearance on Radio Clyde in December 2019, covering the UK General Election.

 

Most recently, Colin has been presenting Scottish history features for the new series of The People's History Show. The programme, produced by Up Next Studios, will air on Scottish Television (Channel 3) in 2020. Colin's features cover the likes of the Dounreay nuclear fast reactor (seen above), the 1964 typhoid outbreak in Aberdeen and the Scottish founder of Forbes' magazine in New York City.
