Colin Paterson Biography – Colin Paterson Wiki

Colin Paterson is a Scottish journalist. He is currently an entertainment correspondent for the BBC. He has been a host and reporter on BBC Three’s Liquid News. He joined Liquid News from Channel 4’s The Big Breakfast.

In 2002, Colin and Claudia Winkleman replaced the late Christopher Price as host of BBC Choice’s Liquid News programme. They were among the stars who acted as stand-in hosts of the show since Price was found dead at his central London home in April 2002. The 34-year-old, regarded as one of the rising stars of the BBC, died of a rare brain disease similar to meningitis.

Colin and Claudia admitted Price would be a hard act to follow. Paterson said at the time: “Christopher was fantastic to work with. He made me feel welcome right from the start. I learned a lot from him.” He described his new role as “the best job in television, well apart from roving reporter on the World Darts”.

The Glaswegian has covered 20 Oscars. He covered the 2002 World Cup for Liquid News and wrote a weekly music column for The Guardian.
