James McCarthy

I first got going with NNSL Media in 2007 and the bosses made me the sports editor. I must've done alright because they kept me around. In 2022, I was given the chance to ascend to the managing editor's role and I'm still here. If you have a question, concern, complaint or story idea you want me to know about, get in touch and thanks for reading.
