Aasmah Mir
Aasmah joined BBC Radio Five Live in July 2001.

In the middle of the football season she was called in to co-present Sport on Five with Ian Payne, a request she had no hesitation accepting.

She has now moved on to co-present the Weekend News with Richard Evans.

Aasmah has been a Celtic supporter since she began working for Scottish Television in the early 1990s.

She claims: "You were considered weird in the Scottish media if you didn't support anyone. I chose Celtic because they were the underdogs at the time and my nearest team."

Now she cannot believe her luck, being able to combine her skills as a newsreader with her love of football in one job.
