Commenting on the news that Jackie Bird is to depart Reporting Scotland after thirty years at the helm, Scottish Liberal Democrat culture spokesperson Eileen McCartin said:
“Jackie Bird is a Scottish television staple. She’s kept viewers across the country entertained with her witty and compassionate analysis for decades.
“Not only that but she’s been a strong female voice and presence in all our lives.
“We’ll be extremely sad not to see her on Reporting Scotland anymore, but wish her well with everything she takes on next.”
