Liam Rudden Media

Writer | Director | Broadcaster


Liam Rudden is an award-winning playwright, journalist, and theatre director and was for 19 years Entertainment Editor of the Edinburgh Evening News. With more than 40 years experience working across the media – print, magazine and paper, radio, film and digital – he is a much sought after commentator on theatre, entertainment and many other related topics.


Having written for publications as diverse as Marvel Comics, Gay Scotland, The Scotsman and Edinburgh Evening News, creating features, press releases and news stories that attract attention online and in print is something at which I excel. Whether you require interviews, features or press pack content to syndicate across digital and print media, my extensive  knowledge of both local and national titles as well as the ever changing nature of both online and print will ensure the content I create for you is noticed by editors and readers alike.


As a playwright, director and producer, my productions have been seen by international audiences including having my work staged on New York’s Broadway and in Toronto, Canada. I have also written and directed numerous warmly acclaimed ‘five star’ pantomimes. As an actor, I most recently appeared in the BBC/PBS production, Lucy Worsley Investigates: The Madness of King George, playing Dr Francis Willis. In all these endeavours my ability to creatively think outside the box ensures I can bring a fresh perspective to your project for both cast and audiences alike.


From hosting book launches and promotional events, to commentating on the world of entertainment on radio and TV, personal appearances are experiences on which I thrive. Having been heard on both BBC and commercial radio, where I also presented the ground-breaking Off The Wall Breakfast Call and regular entertainment slots, I am well versed in operating in the live broadcast environment, either in studio or down the line. My in depth knowledge of the entertainment scene assures a lively and appropriate contribution to your broadcast.
