After training and working for BBC Wales, where she worked on the Welsh language children's programme Bilidowcar, Mair joined Llanelli-based independent television production company Tinopolis in 1991. When Tinopolis produced both programmes from Cardiff, for a time she presented both the English language BBC Wales news Wales Today from 18:30 to 19:00, as well as the Welsh S4C Wedi 7 from 19:00 to 19:30. Mair still presents Wedi7, and is Executive Director for Tinopolis, where by 2006 she held 2.86% of the shares.

Mair wrote a column in the Wales on Sunday newspaper. In December 2006 her comment on the break-up of the relationship of her friend, ITV1 weather presenter Sian Lloyd, against Lloyd's former partner Lembit Öpik - including suggesting that Montgomeryshire needed a new MP - drew much public criticism.

Mair has two daughters with her second husband Jonathan Cray, a cameraman for Tinopolis. The family live in Llanbedr-y-fro in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Running career

After a challenge from a colleague, Mair ran her first full marathon in New York city in 1991, in a time of 3:29:00. This amazing result for a beginner meant she kept training and won the Reykjavik Marathon in 1996. She entered the trials for the Great Britain athletics squad for the 1997 World Championships in Athens, Greece, where she came 23rd in the Women's Marathon in a time of 2:42:31.

Mair kept running and in 2014 finished 3rd in the Grueling Snowdonia Marathon.

In 2016 Mair set a new British record for the marathon, in the W55 Category, by completing the London Marathon in a time of 2.57.46.
