TV3 News Anchor Siobhan Bastible has joined the TalentBase team.
Siobhan is from Sandycove in County Dublin, one of seven children. She was educated through Irish in Colaiste Iosagain in Booterstown, before completing a degree in English and History at Trinity College Dublin.
After college, she spent a year living in the US, between San Fransisco and New York, where her siblings are still based.
Siobhan then lived in Brussels for the best part of a year, as a Stagiare in the European Commission in DG Agriculture.
On her return to Dublin she met the economist and broadcaster David McWilliams and soon began work as a researcher on the current affairs show Agenda on TV3.
Her first stint as a reporter and newsreader was on then-start up station Newstalk FM. From there she went on to read the news on the Ian Dempsey show in Today FM.
Siobhan began reporting on TV3 News six years ago and was immediately trained in as morning anchor.
In her spare time she horse rides and is running (or hoping to!) the Enniscorthy half-marathon in June.
