After more than 30 years in the broadcast news business I finally put away my notepad and microphone three months ago. I thought: time to put my feet up, spend more time with the family. Read. Listen to music. Watch films.
And hey, I’m doing all that.
But once a newsman always a newsman they say. And now I can write about what I like – within reason of course!
When I was asked by the local daily, the Gibraltar Chronicle, to contribute a weekly column I jumped at the chance. Then I thought, why not start a blog where I could post all the articles in one place?
And that’s just what I mean to do.
The focus is mainly on issues that interest and affect my fellow Gibraltarians. But if things go well I plan to write about other things – yes, music and films for instance – that may find a wider audience.
Before I close an apology: I’m new at this game. It’s my first blog and I’m very much learning as I go along.
So if I screw up please bear with me. I’ll try to improve, I promise!
Thanks for being there.
