THE Scottish Daily Express and sister title, the Daily Star of Scotland, yesterday gave prominent story and picture coverage to claims that STV weather girl, Jean Johansson, wants to break into news.
Said the Express: ….”she has set her sights on following in the footsteps steps of Shereen Nanjiani who was once the station’s number one news presenter.
“Jean, who is married to former Hibs and Rangers footballer, Jonatan Johansson, has set herself a new career goal after successfully completing a post-graduate degree in broadcasting journalism.”
The Port Glasgow-born former model, 28, told the SDE: “It is all looking good. I am taking steps to anchoring the news, one baby step at a time. I would like to follow in Shereen’s footsteps.”
While the Express carried the story on page 20, the Daily Star of Scotland devoted a full-page splash on page six, under the heading: ‘Weather Wag Is Really Hot News’.
The paper reported that Jean had been at BBC Scotland having a discussion with producers and came away feeling really fed up.
The paper said: “So as she walked past the neighbouring STV building she decided to drop her CV off at reception.”
After a few weeks, STV invited her in for a screen test and she hasn’t looked back since…..
