After 12 months of ‘sweat, blood and tears’, Taylor Dent has become a regular sports reporter on Channel Nine’s daytime bulletins. He tells us how he took his chances with both hands.
Taylor wasn’t planning on a career as a sports reporter. Far from it. In fact, he was studying law at university when a friend suggested he apply for a holiday job at Channel Nine. ‘They get people in for every Commonwealth and Olympic Games to log everything that happens,’ he explains. ‘Then when the reporters arrive in the morning they can use the clips in their show.’
