Scottie McClue is the on-air pseudonym of Colin Lamont, a British radio executive and presenter. McClue is sometimes referred to as a shock jock.

Lamont was a continuity announcer at Grampian, Scottish and Border Television.

He has presented Scottie McClue's Mega Phone-In on a wide range of independent local radio stations, starting in 1992 at Red Rose Gold in Preston before moving to many other stations throughout the UK including Scot FM in Edinburgh and Yorkshire based Hallam FM. In mid-April 1998, his show was syndicated across the Magic Radio stations then owned by EMAP in Liverpool, Yorkshire and North East England. He then resigned from EMAP to join Century FM. in Manchester He presented on all the Border Television-owned stations including 100-102 Century FMin Newcastle, becoming the late night phone-in presenter on its Salford-based sister station 105.4 Century FM when it launched in September 1998. His pre-launch clashes with managing director John Myers were recorded and documented on the BBC's Trouble at the Top.

Scottie has released a live video, recorded during his time with Scot FM in the Mid 1990's. This included behind the scenes footage of Scottie at work and a live stand up / phone-in style show at a nearby theatre.

He has also been a radio chief executive, particularly as founder managing director at CentreSound 96.7 in Stirling. which he launched on 4th June 1990

His show on Scot FM received so many calls that BT were forced to limit the number of calls on the number. Scottie claims to be the holder of the world record for telephone calls to a radio station (460,000 in one week according to his website), something that has not been proved and widely disputed.

He was broadcasting on Talk 107, a 24 hour talk radio station based in Edinburgh, Scotland providing radio phone in discussions for its target listening audience in Edinburgh, Fife and the Lothians. His show ran from Sunday to Thursday between the hours on 22.00-01.00 on 107.00 FM (Within the Edinburgh, Fife and Lothians area), DAB and worldwide, live via the internet at www.talk107.co.uk.

As part of a series of changes at the station Scottie presented his last show for Talk 107 on the morning of Friday 14 March 2008. His nighttime show was replaced temporarily with a simulcast of the "The James Whale Show" from London on sister station Talk Sport, which after a few weeks was in turn replaced by another show.

Scottie McClue can currently be found on Scottish local radio station ' Lanarkshire's L107' (107.5FM & 107.9FM), where he now presents the phone in/music show Top Talk & Top Tunes from 10am till 12pm weekdays Monday-Friday. He is the station's programme manager.
