Freelance Sports Writer and Broadcaster | Andy West

Hi Andy, thank you for taking the time to speak to us today. Can you tell our readers about yourself, what you currently do and how did you end up where you are right now?

When did you know you wanted to work in the football?

As a freelance sports writer and broadcaster for the likes of La Liga TV, BBC Sport and others, what does a ‘normal’ week look like for you?

What are the most enjoyable and difficult parts of your role?

What’s been your standout moments/highlights so far?

Who are your favourite football writers or commentators at the moment and what do you think it is that makes them so brilliant?

What general advice would you give to those individuals looking to pursue a career in football writing? What are the key skills required?

I’m sure you’ve sent countless pitches in your time. In your opinion, what makes a good pitch? Any key advice you can share with freelancers at the start of their journey looking to pitch their stories/ideas to editors?

Working in sports can be hectic, so what do you do to switch off outside of work?

And finally Andy, where can people find you on social media to connect?
