“It’s important to let everyone know what’s happening with local teams and athletes and to put the spotlight on them,” said Taylor.

Look for Taylor at local rinks, pools and fields.

“We’re delighted to add another keen local person to our team at The NEWS,” said editor John Harding. “Tyson has an infectious excitement about local sports that we’re sure will be evident in his stories and photographs.”
