Born and raised in Glasgow, Symon began his career at Radio Clyde in 1981 as a relief presenter for the Drivetime programme Clydewide Tonight. Afterwards, he continued to present various programmes for the station.
By 1983, Symon had joined Scottish Television (now STV Central) as a continuity announcer and newsreader. During this time, he voiced many nationwide TV advertisements in the UK and was also chosen as the voice for a talking version of an Action Man toy.
Symon continued announcing on a freelance basis when he became a presentation director for Scottish TV in 1988. He also announced and directed transmission for Grampian Television. He left Scottish Television in 2003 but rejoined seven years later as an out-of-vision presenter for STV's regional overnight strand The Nightshift.
