|»||South East Today|
Polly grew up in Cardiff, her family come from Carmarthenshire in west Wales.
But with strong links to Sussex she's been coming to the South East for many years.
She caught the journalism bug at the University of Leeds working early mornings on the campus radio station. Then came the features department of BBC Radio Wales making programmes for BBC Radio Four.
Before landing a place at Cardiff Journalism School to do a post-graduate diploma, the budding hack took herself off to post-war Bosnia to make a film about a new impartial television station for the country.
She's also managed to fit in a year working in Japan as an English teacher, living in Tokyo was "wonderful, challenging and totally bizarre!"
Polly initially joined BBC Radio Wales as a reporter and bulletins reader, before moving south to BBC Radio Devon a year later.
It wasn't long before she moved over to report and present bulletins for the television news programme Spotlight and the South West Politics Show.
Then came South East Today, a move she was delighted to make.
When she's off duty Polly enjoys indulging her passion for the arts, going to the theatre and exhibitions. She's also a relatively keen scuba diver and is "learning to love" her partner's power kite.
