Nicky Campbell

1962 -

Disc-jockey and television personality. Born of an unmarried mother, who had left Ireland to work in Portobello on discovering she was pregnant, Campbell was adopted by an Edinburgh family aged only a few days and brought up in that city. He was educated at the Edinburgh Academy and at the University of Aberdeen. Starting his career as a civil servant, he gave this up to work for the local radio station, North Sound in Aberdeen. Moving to London to join Capital Radio, success came when he joined BBC Radio One in 1987, with his air-time soon extended. In 1997, he moved to BBC Radio 5. Television work included the game-show 'Wheel of Fortune' for Scottish Television, which was syndicated across the British Independent Television network, and the consumer programme Watch Dog for the BBC.
