Rhona McLeod is a Scottish broadcaster.

McLeod is a former international athlete and was a member of the Scotland team for seven years, but now works for BBC Scotland.

As an athlete, her preferred events included sprint hurdles and long jump and she enjoyed a wealth of travel experiences around the world competing for her country. It was always her aim to combine her interest in sport with a future career in journalism.

After a freshman year studying Broadcasting at the University of Wyoming, she completed a BA degree in Media Studies at the University of Stirling.

In her working career McLeod has contributed to the specialist sports magazines Scotland's Runner, Scottish, The Punter football magazine and Today's Runner. She has also freelanced in sport and general features for the Daily Record, Sunday Mail and Scotland on Sunday. Then, in 1995, she joined BBC Scotland. Since then she has worked on a variety of programmes, generally in sport, presenting sport segments on Reporting Scotland and as a reporter on "The Adventure Show". She now also presents the Scottish segment of BBC One's recently-introduced news update at 8pm on weekdays.

In her time with BBC Scotland McLeod has also enjoyed working at the World Cup in France in 1998 and Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur, Manchester and, in 2006, Melbourne. She was also part of BBC Scotland's coverage of the decision to award the same tournament to Glasgow in 2014.

Her hobbies include watching and playing sport. She is married with two daughters. In 2005 she presented, wrote and produced the documentary Gambian Goals - A Donkeymentary. She has won a Royal Television Society Award for Sports News journalism.
