BBC Journalist Dies Aged 32 After Collapsing on Run

A BBC presenter has died aged 32 after collapsing while out running.

Nick Sheridan is understood to have suffered a brain aneurysm around 10 days ago, prompting doctors to put him in an induced coma.

Friends said he died in hospital on Wednesday evening with his family by his bedside.

BBC Scotland informed his colleagues by email on Thursday morning. The broadcaster announced his death and paid tribute to him in a social media post.

Gary Smith, head of news and current affairs at BBC Scotland, said: “We’re devastated to hear the news our colleague and friend Nick Sheridan has died.

“Nick has been a wonderful colleague. He was a hugely talented journalist, presenter and author and one of those rare people who light up the lives of everyone around them. Our hearts go out to his parents, his partner and to all his family and friends.”

‘Young, talented, vivacious’

Mr Sheridan, originally from Wexford in Ireland, had previously worked for STV and RTE in Dublin before joining BBC Scotland in 2018, where he presented shows including the flagship Reporting Scotland news programme.

He was also building a name for himself as a children’s author, was a keen runner and enjoyed swimming in Scotland’s lochs.

BBC Scotland reported he had died after a “short illness”. It declined to provide further details.

Nicola Sturgeon, the former first minister, posted on X, formerly Twitter: “It is truly awful. Nick was young, talented, vivacious and full of potential. What a horrible, senseless loss. My thoughts are with his family, colleagues and many friends.”

Humza Yousaf, her successor, paid tribute to Mr Sheridan during First Minister’s Questions at Holyrood, saying: “Nick was an extremely talented journalist and author, and he will be greatly missed.

“Many of us in this chamber will have been questioned by Nick, quite robustly no doubt, whether it was on BBC Drivetime or on many of the other programmes he presented,” he said. “My thoughts are with his family, his many friends and indeed his colleagues at what will undoubtedly be a very sad time.”

Douglas Ross, the Scottish Tory leader, described Mr Sheridan as “a robust but extremely professional journalist” and said: “I know his loss will be felt so much by his family and his friends, and in particular his colleagues at the BBC and across the media, by whom he was so highly regarded.”

    Another clot shot victim.

  • Rich says:

    Chinese communist and Demoncrat covid clot shot. The gift that keeps on giving.

  • Beemergranny says:

    Was he a victim of the jab?? No one will know. It will be kept hush hush. Question: Why are so many young people just dropping dead from “natural causes” the last two and a half years? Why are the instances of infant and childhood cancers skyrocketing in the same time period? I have so many questions. Even the WHO are saying that “maybe the vax wasn’t as safe as first thought.” Hmmmmm
