Hello, I’m Adam Hassell, a Sport Journalist in my final year at Teesside University, due to graduate with a First-Class Honours Degree in BA (Hons) Sport Journalism and the NCTJ Level 3 Diploma in Journalism, including 60wpm shorthand.
Sport Journalism, BA (Hons)
I have always been an avid football fan, however soon realised I preferred watching and talking about it than playing it. I received special recognition from the Notts County media team in a junior match report competition when I was just ten and have since always wanted to progress into a career in journalism.
I came to Teesside due to their strong links with surrounding sports clubs but also to gain the NCTJ accreditation, which I’m pleased to say I’ve achieved. During my time here, I have expanded my interests away from just football, and purposefully tried to produce content on other sports and other subjects.
Whilst sport is still a huge passion of mine, I now enjoy learning and producing content on other important subject matters such as politics and current affairs and enjoy both equally.
SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE PROFICIENCIES
I am an Adobe Certified Associate in Digital Video Editing using Premiere Pro. I am also comfortable using the Microsoft Office package and other Adobe software such as Audition.
EMPLOYMENT, WORK EXPERIENCE & VOLUNTEERING
I worked for Sky News for the General Election night in December 2019. I have worked as an audio descriptive commentator for Middlesbrough Football Club and volunteered as a matchday commentator for Spennymoor Town Football Club, I have also produced content for the MFC Foundation and Tees Valley Sport. I’ve had work experience with BBC Radio Tees, working very closely with their sports team, helping out with producing bulletins, editing packages and working as a Broadcast Assistant.
Throughout my time at university, I have produced content on a range of subjects, not just sport, including current affairs, politics and disability.
In my personal life, I have been a season ticket holder at Notts County Football Club since 2006. I am also Grade 6 at the Alto Saxophone.
