Halla Mohieddeen is an RTS nominated Scottish journalist and broadcaster
Halla is a Scottish news presenter and broadcast journalist. She was part of the launch team for STV News Tonight - the first prime-time National, UK and International news programme in Scotland. She earned an RTS Scotland nomination for On-Screen Personality for her work on this ground-breaking new show.
The integrated news format enabled STV to bring international news directly to Scottish audiences for the first time, including in-depth coverage of the Rohingya refugee crisis, the ongoing Syrian and Yemen wars and the Donald Trump presidency.
Her work at STV included presenting the current affairs programme Scotland Tonight, and STV's UK General election coverage, where she announced the results of the exit poll.
Halla’s international experience and desire to keep reporting on important world issues led to the launch of the podcast Outwith. Every week Halla is joined by guests worldwide, to debate and discuss the underreported issues of the day, in a longer format.
Halla is also involved in several charities, and actively promotes minority voices on air. She is also part of the Women in Journalism initiative.
Halla also works as an event host, corporate speaker and debate moderator.
