Miller appointed BBC Scotland environment corr

ONE of BBC Scotland’s most experienced journalists has been appointed the Corporation’s environment correspondent.

David Miller succeeds Louise Bachelor, who left earlier this year. He has recently been working for BBC Radio Scotland’s Good Morning Scotland, after having been Scotland correspondent for Five Live. One of his highest-profile recent assignments was reporting live from the United States for GMS as Barack Obama was elected President.

He joined the BBC as a trainee 20 years ago.

Says Atholl Duncan, head of news and current affairs: “We see this is a vital addition to our specialist journalism. David is an exceptional broadcaster with lots of experience. He joins people like Brian Taylor, Glenn Campbell, Douglas Fraser and Eleanor Bradford in what we believe is one of the best teams of specialist journalists in the UK.

“Environment and climate change will be a massively important issue in the coming monts as we approach the Copenhagen Summit and beyond.”
