Born in St Andrew's, Hazel attended the Hermitage Academy in Helensburgh before studying for an MA in History of Art at Scotland's University of St Andrew's.

Her move into sport came a year later when she joined Scottish Television as a reporter.

She worked as a presenter on ITV's coverage of the 1988 Olympics and reported for the ITV Network on the 1990 World Cup Finals.

Hazel joined BBC Scotland in 1990 as presenter of its Friday night sports preview programme Sportscene.
