Sports Journalism

“If you love your job, you’ll never work a day in your life.”

My personal goals that I have set myself seem realistic to me. I want to report on an Olympic games. I want to report on an NBA basketball game. I want to report on several international sports.

I have worked two years for Sorrento Football Club. The Sorrento Gulls are a National Premiere League team. I worked as their media assistant manager and eventually media manager. This involved me writing an article or two a week for the club website, as well as handling their social media accounts. This job gave me the opportunity to get my foot in the door and even gave me the chance to report on a game that was broadcast nationally. I will provide several articles that I wrote for Sorrento in the subsection below.

I also took a Sports Journalism unit at university this year. The lecturer, Jonathan Cook works for Football West in Communications and Public Relations. He provided a very valuable six months of teaching and I will provide work I did for his class in a second subsection below.
