"There are certain skills required of a TV journalist to put you at ease in an interview. The level of professionalism, have they done their research, are they compassionate, intelligent and inquisitive to the appropriate degree. Having watched Rhona work and spent time in her company she is one of those rare people that manages to stay perfectly natural and friendly, whilst meeting all those essential requirements."

Laura Muir

Double European Champion

Athletics

"I have been interviewed by Rhona multiple times. From grass playing fields in zero degree temperatures to championship competition venues, even at my graduation. Every time she is able to adapt her tone to suit the occasion perfectly whilst having a clear understanding of the conversation topic. This is only part of what makes Rhona such a professional journalist and a pleasure to work with."

Sammi Kinghorn

World Champion wheelchair racer and Paralympian

"I have known Rhona for a number of years and always felt completely comfortable being interviewed by her. Rhona has always made me feel so valued as a para athlete as she has always pushed para sport." 

Eilidh Doyle

Olympian and former British Athletics Team Captain

"Rhona is very professional and has an in-depth knowledge of athletics. When working with myself and my training group, which included various GB athletes, she was very personable and put us at ease but also understood when to stand back and let us get on with our training. This gained her respect from the athletes and resulted in a more successful interview. Her love of athletics is evident from her enthusiasm and knowledge of the sport, and this allows her interviews to be competent and comfortable for the interviewee. She’s also not afraid to ask the tough questions and, because of her ease of questioning and knowledge of the subject matter, she usually gets a more meaningful and honest answer from her interviewee."

Gregor Townsend

Head Coach

"Rhona is really good to work with, always engaging, enthusiastic and professional. I believe that she has a genuine love for sport and is interested in getting the story of the effort, commitment and sacrifice that goes into performances as well as highlighting the positive impact that sport can have on communities, and also the unseen work that goes on behind the scenes."
