Hi there, welcome to Gibsteve!

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.┬áBut 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.

  1. Hi Gibsteve,
    As you’ve now retired perhaps you’ll have time to discuss NEISH family history with me,
    lots of old folks do this as a hobby to fill in the days before they die!
    I’m your 6th cousin living in Cambridgeshire but we both trace back to Banffshire.
    If you’re interested get back to me by email.
