In 2020 she launched the Scotland’s People Awards which is now a mainstay of BBC festive viewing. She’s also the face of Scotland’s Children in Need. Jackie writes and produces documentaries on TV and on radio including specialist music programmes, and having begun her career in print journalism she is still a newspaper and magazine columnist.
