Who we are
STV has been serving the people of Scotland for over 60 years. Although technologies have changed, our values haven’t. The team at STV News are committed to delivering news you can trust. We work hard to make all of our reporting impartial, accurate and fair as well as engaging, entertaining and reflective of Scottish society and culture.
How we work
Our television programmes are regulated by Ofcom and covered by the Broadcast Code. This is a broad set of principles and guidelines designed to ensure viewers can trust what they watch and to offer recourse when needed. Currently, this regulation does not extend to the content we publish on our website but STV News employs the same standards regardless of whether audiences consume our stories on TV or on our website and social media channels.
All of our journalists uphold our values and obligations, and operate to a high ethical standard. In particular they:
- Work within the Broadcast Code with a specific emphasis on fairness, impartiality and accuracy
- Make robust endeavours to ensure that everything that is broadcast or published has been checked and verified
- Receive regular training and updates in recognition of the role that editorial judgement plays in informing the content of our programmes and website
Our corrections policy
We will occasionally get things wrong. The rights of reply and recourse are core values of STV News and all complaints are dealt with seriously and with respect.
We can be contacted through our dedicated enquires service. This ensures that all contact is documented and fully tracked through to resolution. The service can be reached at [email protected] or by telephone on 0141 300 3704 (10am to 2pm Monday to Friday).
Our registered office is: STV, Pacific Quay, Glasgow, G51 1PQ
You also have the right to raise any concerns about STV News broadcast content directly with OFCOM. There are a range of contact options which can be found on its website: Contacting Ofcom – Ofcom
STV News employs over 100 journalists at our newsrooms across Scotland. The team is led by Steven Ladurantaye, the Head of News and Current Affairs. Steven can be contacted on [email protected] and is always happy to discuss our journalism or address any concerns you may have. Additionally, our newsrooms can be contacted at [email protected].
Equality, diversity and inclusion policy

We will create a working environment where all employees can give their best and develop their potential irrespective of their gender (including sex, marriage and gender reassignment), race (including ethnic origin, colour, nationality, and national origin) disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief, or age.
Furthermore, we are committed to increasing the diversity of our workforce and strongly encourage applications from candidates from all backgrounds and as a Disability Confident employer we will offer an interview to disabled candidates who meet the minimum criteria for the role.
