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 his last role was as Senior Reporter for Radio Clyde News, Colin began his television career at the age of 22 when he joined STV Glasgow in May 2014 ahead of its launch as one of the 'faces' of the channel.

 

During his 18-month tenure 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 at the Emirates Arena. 

 

Colin featured in more than 300 live episodes of The Riverside Show and broadcast around 750 individual live segments.

 

As well as this, he also featured in a similar number of video packages. These included a wide range of activities and events, including a live broadcast from a seaplane, a St Patrick's Day street party, open-water swimming on Loch Lomond and countless others. 

 

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. 

 

After 18 months with the channel, Colin joined STV News in January 2016. 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 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.

 

Most recently, Colin has been presenting 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 Summer 2019.
