My background is broadcasting and journalism. I worked in various radio newsrooms after leaving Napier University with a BA Journalism. I was gadget and technology presenter with STV's 'The Hour' and continue to make regular appearances on BBC Radio 5 Live discussing these issues.
In 2011 I joined BBC Radio Scotland as presenter of the 'Morning Briefing' programme before leaving in early 2012 to start a family and focus on running my own business, Colin Kelly Media. It helps businesses get noticed through a mix of public relations, media skills training, social media training, press release writing and distribution, content creation and corporate video production.
I work across the private and public sectors on all aspects of media relations strategy and work closely with digital marketing agency NSDesign where I deliver social media training in partnership with them.
Outside work, my son ensures I continue to frequently wake up at 3am and I enjoy taking him swimming, going for walks and when I get the chance, reading the Jack Reacher books by Lee Child.
