Kelly Ann Woodland is a newsreader and journalist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. She is best known for co-presenting STV central's flag-ship news at 6 programme with John MacKay[2].

While still at university Woodland had her first experience in the media industry as a researcher for STV's weekly politics programme Platform. After graduating from the University of Glasgow in 2002 with a masters degree in politics and sociology [3] Woodland started work at Castle Rock FM in Dumbarton as a news reporter and bulletin reader. She joined STV in 2003 as a news assistant. Woodland was quickly promoted to production journalist and then finally reporter after a few years. From 2010 Woodland became the regular early morning presenter of the STV News on Daybreak/ Good Morning Britain(GMB). In recent years, Woodland has become one of STV's main reporters and the stand in presenter for all of their news programmes including the STV Glasgow and Edinburgh 6 o'clock news and also Scotland Tonight.

In September 2018 STV re-launched their flag-ship 6 o'clock news programme for the central belt of Scotland [2]. The new format combined the existing Edinburgh and Glasgow programmes into one co-anchored programme that contained sections that opted out to east or west stories, mixed with sections that were co-anchored from both locations with links being shared by both presenters. Kelly-Ann was chosen to anchor from the Edinburgh studio with John MacKay anchoring from the glasgow studio.

She has an Masters in politics and sociology from Glasgow University.[3]
