Amy Irons

Radio Presenter at Capital FM
BA (Hons) Multimedia Journalism 2013


Amy is a talented reporter, video journalist and radio presenter. While a student, her documentary on legal highs earned her the prestigious Callum MacDonald Award at the Scottish Student Journalist Awards.

She has since been a reporter for West FM and West Sound Radio. Then she moved to STV where she reported on ground-breaking stories, like the refugee crisis in Calais. Now she presents the breakfast show on Capital FM with Des Clarke.

“After an amazing four years at university, I quickly got to put my degree knowledge into practice when I secured my first job at West FM in Ayrshire. After eight months, I moved to STV as a reporter for the new Glasgow channel.

“I've met some inspirational people and already learned so much from the dedicated friendly team here. I’m looking forward to what's hopefully a long future in broadcast journalism.”
