Despite being just 25, Colin Stone possesses years of live television experience and has one of the most unique showreels in Scottish broadcasting.
Although currently working as the 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 700 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 2015.
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, Scottish Cup matches and the winter chaos on the railway network.
