Featured Journalist: Sam Jones
Our featured journalist today is Sam Jones, a reporter for the Tamworth Herald. In addition to covering sport, video games, technology and general news, Sam created the gaming blog One Man and His Controller. For his work as a football reporter during his final year at Sunderland University, he was named the 2013 SportsByte Reporter of the Year, and in 2015 he was nominated for the Midlands Media Awards Newcomer of the Year Award. His advice to aspiring journalists? “Keep at it, make yourself known to local newspapers and offer your services. Report accurately and professionally too.” When Sam completed the Muck Rack journalist survey, he let us know that he wanted to be featured in the Muck Rack Daily. (Your wish is our command, Sam! Thanks for taking the survey.) Check out Sam’s full profile here to see his portfolio and read more about him.
