Alison Walker was the first female voice to be heard reporting on live football for the BBC in the 90's. Since then she has been all over the world covering sport.
She has reported on nine Olympic Games, four Commonwealth Games and two Ryder Cups.
During her time at the BBC, she had an eight year stint presenting the sports news on the flagship news programme Reporting Scotland. She has presented a multitude of sports for the BBC from football, golf, rugby and shinty to badminton, curling and swimming and has been lucky enough to interview hundreds of sports stars from Usain Bolt to Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps and Pele. Interviewing Eve Muirhead after her gold medal success @Beijing2022 is a huge highlight.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You – what a beautiful Immortal Memory, heartfelt and personal in places, I don’t think we’ve ever had a more perfectly judged, passionate delivery and feedback has been absolutely overwhelming. Thanks again Alison – it was lovely to meet you!
I’m really pleased with how the event went and you were fantastic. You got the tone just right, both Toasts were appropriate, funny and entertaining and the bit at the start worked really well too. Thank you as well for staying and for your patience with the trail of people who wanted to speak to you and get photos!

Wow! That was a wonderful Immortal Memory – and everyone I spoke to on the way out remarked on it. Thank you so much for making last night an event to remember, and for such a knowledgeable and beautifully presented speech.

Thanks so much again for the Conference. It was a great success and you made it so much easier for me.
The Conference just gets better each year and what a compelling and sensitively handled interview by Alison. Well done.
That was a blast. Safe travels Ryder Cup Radio. Thank you SO SO much for all the hard work.
We look forward to next year of the Dunfermline Community Champion Awards. Our editor feels you are as much part of the event as the awards itself.
