Jim White (presenter)
Five years later he moved into television as a news and current affairs reporter with STV. In 1986 he was appointed sports reporter and one of his first assignments was to travel with the Scottish team to the World Cup Finals in Mexico.
During the 80's he was a regular sports presenter on the flagship Scotland Today programme alongside stalwarts John Toye and Fiona Ross.
White is best known for his round-the-clock presenting marathon on transfer deadline day and his wooden leg. The days, 31 August and 31 January, are sometimes affectionately referred to as "Jim White day" by football fans.
