Loudspeaker Talent Agency - Catie Friend


Brought up in the countryside on the West Coast of Scotland. Catie grew up riding horses, building dens, climbing trees and trying to avoid tidying her room!

Following a move to Switzerland she became a presenter for Mountain Radio Verbier – two years on the lunchtime show and one year as the breakfast show host, a job she totally loved and which gave her so many opportunities to do live radio, voiceovers and interviews as well as pre-recorded content.

 In 2014 she was asked to stand in as a commentator for the ISMF (International Ski Mountaineering Federation) with a day’s notice and she clearly did a great job as she hasn’t looked back and is still commentating for the World Cup Circuit.

In 2018, in another dream come true and Catie became the English-speaking voice of the Africa Eco Race (formerly the Paris Dakar Rally). Travelling with the rally from Monaco to Dakar, Senegal, through Morocco and Mauritania. Catie translates the script from French to English, records the voiceover for the daily 12 minute recap video and presents live from the bivouac every evening.

When Catie is not mic in hand, she loves ski mountaineering, swimming, skiing, cycling, hiking, kitesurfing, SUPing. You could say she isn’t short on energy!
