My name is Michael Bailey and I am a sports journalist and TV presenter working in Norfolk, England primarily covering Norwich City Football Club. I currently work for the Eastern Daily Press, pinkun.com and Mustard TV. I also host the Formula One community built around The NR F1 Podcast. I have written for numerous national titles and appeared on TalkSport, Sky Sports, the BBC and more. I've been lucky enough to be named EDF East of England Sports Journalist of the Year (2013) and EDF East of England Digital Journalist of the Year (2012, 2013, 2014).
