News: Susan Calman To Front Scottish New Year Show
Comedian, presenter and writer Susan Calman is to front this year’s extended BBC Scotland Hogmanay output, joined by Des Clarke and Amy Irons, who will capture the unique atmosphere of Scotland’s world-renowned celebrations live on the night.

The panellist on News Quiz and presenter of Great British Menu will get the pre-recorded party underway from Pacific Quay's Studio A, bringing a lively mix of both traditional and popular music, including Scottish music legends Travis, and chat in Susan Calman’s (Not Quite) End Of Year Show on the BBC Scotland channel on Hogmanay.

The party will get in to full swing from 11.30pm on both the BBC Scotland channel and BBC One Scotland with Hogmanay 2019, when Susan will invite Des Clarke and Amy Irons to join the party and help her bring in the New Year from around Scotland.

Susan Calman says: “Hogmanay is such an important occasion across the country and I’m delighted to be on hand to help usher in the New Year. It’s going to be a fun night packed with great comedy, entertainment and music. I always like to get a party started and hope everyone will join me to welcome in 2020 in spectacular fashion."

This year's extended programme - broadcast on both the BBC Scotland channel and BBC One Scotland - will bring the best of traditional and popular music for armchair audiences and help bring in the New Year in style.

Steve Carson, BBC Scotland Head of Commissioning, says: "We've changed things a little this year so that we can bring all the key live moments from around Scotland, as we always do, as well as bringing great music for the hundreds of thousands who join us in their living rooms - and we also have a brand new presenting team of household names. It’s great to have Susan, Des and Amy fronting our shows."
