She has also been reporting the news for LBC and Heart FM, as well as voicing the documentary series Golden Trek, and presenting The Big Welsh Wake Up on Nation Radio. And Mariclare is the Creative Director of her own production company, Memorable Creative Journalism.
As well as hosting the channel’s launch show and Live anniversary show, Mariclare was also the face of its flagship nightly magazine programme, What's Occurrin' Cardiff? and she produced and presented the factual entertainment series Animal Sanctuary.
Mariclare freelanced for a variety of clients, from National Broadcasters to independent production companies. Her credits included: The Wales Report – Reporter/Producer, Associated Press – Reporter, Real Radio – News Presenter, Wales This Week - Producer, Crimewatch Roadshow – Production team, Cardiff Times Magazine – Columnist
Exclusive reports and investigations characterised Mariclare’s role as Health Correspondent and her reports featured on the National ITV News. For 3 years running she was recognised at the Medical Journalists’ Association Summer Awards and she also presented “Wales Decides 2011: Health” a half hour programme looking at health issues in Wales in the run up to the Welsh Assembly Election.
Mariclare ran the West Wales bureau for ITV. As well as fronting pre-recorded and live stories from location, she presented live bulletins from studio. She also carried out interviews for the current affairs series Wales This Week.

Mariclare presented live news and travel bulletins and pre recorded reports for various stations including Capital Gold, Red Dragon FM, The Wave and Bridge FM.
We worked together on Animal Sanctuary and it was a great project to be involved with. Mariclare has a real passion for animals and her knowledge came across in a really relaxed manner. I loved working with her!
Mariclare has been amazing since she has been with Made in Cardiff. She is a leader but also an integral part of the team. Mariclare will follow up every story and is fun to be with. She also has a cute French Bull Dog called Pierre who actually is the boss!
Mariclare is a tenacious, experienced and talented broadcast journalist with a deep understanding of the national agenda in Wales. Popular with her colleagues, Mariclare can be trusted to deliver - whether it be a high profile, 'on the day' turnaround or a longer form investigation - she never shies away from asking the challenging question.
Mariclare has worked on the Wales Report as a freelance reporter and as a producer for a number of months. Her energy, enthusiasm and conscientious attitude to everything she does has made her a valuable member of the team. And even more importantly, Mariclare is a lovely and generous colleague with a great sense of humour; the personification of the saying ' it's nice to be important but more important to be nice'.
Mariclare has worked for me as a freelance journalist for Real Radio and now for Global South Wales under the brands of Heart, Capital and Smooth. She brings with her a ton of experience, and always fits really quickly into a busy news team. Mariclare is reliable, knows and understands the patch brilliantly, and has an excellent broadcasting voice. Importantly, she is good fun and sociable within the radio station, and if you are really lucky you might get to meet her French Bulldog Pierre!
The quality of Mariclare’s work speaks for itself - she has great passion and enthusiasm for everything she does. She is a real pleasure to work with and know, and we are very excited to be working with her more in the future.
I have booked and worked with many event hosts and TV Presenters over the years through my experience of event management and PR. Mariclare Carey-Jones is a consummate professional a total pleasure to work with. Nothing is too much trouble. Her pedantic research and attention to detail is spot on. Not only intellectually does she tell the most wonderful stories to camera and audience alike. Her personal presentation and attire for each project is well thought out. Mariclare is the whole package, incredibly marketable, reputable and has a wide fan base.
Mariclare is a brilliant consummate broadcaster. She’s always extremely professional and has huge integrity - qualities which are often very hard to find in this very competitive sector. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her services and she’s great fun to work with too!
