About Alastair McIntyre

Alastair McIntyre | 14:52 UK time, Saturday, 5 January 2008

Born and bred in the sporting hot-bed of the North West of England (St Helens... and yes Saints and Rugby League are one of my biggest sporting passions), I am from the school of 'if you are not good enough to play professional sport, then I want to be involved in it somehow'.

I was always interested in journalism and that is how I started my 'media' career.

I started in newspapers at the Warrington Guardian reporting firstly on news and then writing about that great Rugby League team involving Jonathan Davies before moving to the Lancashire Evening Telegraph. I was there when Blackburn won the Premiership and then shortly after that I moved to the Sentinel evening newspaper in Stoke for three years where I designed the sports pages, wrote the headlines and did some reporting.

I started at BBC Sport as a sub-editor in 1998, researching and writing copy for the presenters before moving into production in 1999 and since then I've been lucky to have done a variety of roles behind the scenes - produce music items, film and cut stories and features as well as edit programmes which I've been doing for the past six six years.

The job is fantastic - you get to work on some great events, some great shows with some great people - The Olympics, Sports Personality Of The Year, the Six Nations, Wimbledon. Plenty of variety and plenty of fun.
