Catriona Shearer is now established as one of Scotland's most popular TV presenters. Apart from her appearances on BBC Breakfast, Catriona is a regular presenter on the station's main news programme 'Reporting Scotland'. 

Catriona began her journalistic career soon after graduation from Edinburgh's Napier University in 2003. Catriona then moved to London where she worked as a journalist-producer on BBC Radio Five Live's Breakfast programme. She also worked on the station's 'Drive' programme, 'Midday News' and 'Weekend Breakfast show'. Her love of music meant she was keen to be involved in Radio 1's specialist late-night music programmes too.

Catriona then moved to BBC Radio Wales in Cardiff where she worked as a producer across a wide range of light entertainment, lifestyle and music programmes. She even presented a Saturday afternoon sports programme, 'Sportstime'

Prior to her current TV news role, Catriona's first on-screen presenting job was an online video podcast for BBC Scotland called 'News Weekly'. 

Catriona has held many jobs in the Glasgow newsroom, from radio producer on 'Newsdrive', studio producer on 'Scotland Live' and travel reporter on 'Good Morning Scotland' to outputting the TV bulletins. Catriona also presented a radio quiz series for BBC Radio Scotland called 'Soundbiters'.

Catriona Shearer is a keen music fan and regularly attends festival and concerts. She occasionally indulges her passion for music by presenting the Vic Galloway show and New Music Zone for BBC Scotland. Sport is also of interest to Catriona and she has been on BBC Scotland's 'Only an Excuse' and sat in with Stuart Cosgrove and Tam Cowan on their popular 'Off the Ball' radio programme.

As well as being widely recognised as one of BBC Scotland's top TV presenters, Catriona Shearer is a superb facilitator and a dynamic awards host with a sharp wit and a great sense of humour.
