Who We Are
Following an academic start to his career as a LLB Law student in Cardiff University, followed by ACCA accounting course, Owain Gwynedd has gone on to enjoy a varied career of the last 10 years as a TV presenter and reporter.
Owain, who hails from Porthmadog in North Wales, can be seen on television daily on S4C’s magazine programmes Heno (Tonight) and Prynhawn Da (Good Afternoon), whilst also following his passion for sport broadcasting.
He has anchored Premier Sport and S4C’s rugby coverage and been a regular reporter for BBC Radio Wales & Radio Cymru’s Saturday afternoon sports programmes. He has also been seen on rugby programmes for BT Sport, Channel 5 and ITV.
Having played and refereed rugby to a semi-professional level, the now Cardiff based Owain, feels fortunate to be able to continue his love for sport even though his time on the playing field has ended.
