Shelagh attended Durham University where she studied French, Spanish and Portuguese; she began working for the BBC as a trainee and worked on various different BBC radio shows including Radio Bristol, Radio Sheffield and Radio Merseyside to name a few. While working on these shows she was both a reporter and a producer and this gave her the experience she needed to join the Radio 4 team in 1994.

With a vast amount of experience as a radio broadcaster and show producer, Shelagh’s next step in her career was joining Radio 5 Live. She co-presented the popular Weekend Breakfast show alongside Nicky Campbell and in 2011 she became the host of the lunchtime show, taking over from Gabby Logan. The lunchtime show covers a variety of topics and on Wednesdays she broadcasts live from Westminster and is joined by guest presenters including John Pienaars.

These are only a few of the amazing stories Shelagh has reported on in her impressive career as a journalist and broadcaster.
