Emily Wood has been part of BBC South West’s multimedia weather team since 2008. Before starting her current job, Emily Wood worked for BBC Radio Devon where she had a variety of roles including presenting the travel bulletins.
Emily Wood first became involved in the media while at university in Manchester, where she presented her own radio shows. After graduating in History and Sociology, Emily moved to Devon and worked as a volunteer in hospital radio.
Now it’s Emily Wood’s job to prepare daily weather forecasts and present them on BBC South West’s television and radio programmes throughout the week. Emily Wood has also worked to support volunteering and in 2008 was awarded a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship to study volunteering in New Zealand. She now lives on the edge of Dartmoor with her husband and daughter and enjoys spending time outdoors, whenever the weather allows!
