He joined the BBC in 1985 and is now the Political Editor for BBC Scotland, providing coverage for all outlets, Scottish and network.

Throughout his career, he has presented sundry programmes including Left, Right and Centre and Good Morning Scotland. He now anchors a weekly show on Radio Scotland, Brian Taylor's Big Debate. In addition, he writes a topical blog, Blether with Brian.

Married with two sons, Brian is a fanatical supporter of Dundee United Football Club.
