About Michael Reid

Mick Reid has spent much of the past 30 years tootling from one major sports event to another, laptop in hand, returning from time to time for stints at the Canberra Times news desk and for some R and R in his home town of Melbourne. Mick has been a senior editor at various big sporting events, including the Sydney, Beijing and London Olympic Games, the Vancouver and Sochi Winter Olympic Games and the 2007, 2011 and 2015 rugby World Cups. As a reporter at the Herald Sun and The Age, he covered courts, police rounds and a range of sports, including the VFL/AFL, the national soccer and basketball leagues and Sheffield Shield cricket. Since moving to the UK, he has been published in the Guardian, the Sunday Times, the Sunday Telegraph and the Daily Record. As well as being a news service gun-for-hire, Mick’s talents are sought after elsewhere: he was hired to become the sports editor for the launch of the Brunei Times; more recently, he has lectured in journalism in Glasgow, Manchester and London. Away from his desk, Mick is a mad Manchester United fan and Celtic FC devotee, broken-down marathon runner and lover of northern soul music. Keep the faith.
