Interviewing Formula One driver Heikki Kovalainen.Hello. My name is Michael Bailey and I am a sport journalist currently working for the Eastern Daily Press, Norwich Evening News and – as well as other Archant Norfolk titles.

It is a job I have been doing since 2007 and it is a job I love.

The majority of my writing covers Norwich City Football Club and Formula One – including weekly columns on each subject here (NCFC) and here (F1).

I was also East Anglia’s regional written press correspondent for the 2012 London Olympic Games at Stratford.

Having a tendency to enjoy being asked my opinion, I’ve been a talking head for Sky Sports, BBC, ITV and Abu Dhabi TV. I also present radio shows, video packages and podcasts.

I have written for The Sun, Daily Express, Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, The Independent, Daily and Sunday Telegraph, as well as the Football League Paper and others.

Occasionaly I even get time for a bit of music, travel and other bits and bobs that keep my interest.

As far as background goes, I took my NCTJ preliminary certificate at No Sweat Journalism Training in Clerkenwell, London, before completing my full senior news journalist National Certificate Examination in Norwich.

If you wish to get in touch, that would be great. There are numerous ways of doing so across the site – so I will leave it in your more than capable hands and look forward to hearing from you.
