Past Kiwi sport writers
There have been three previous Kiwi sport writers
Brad Mills - Auckland
Annemare de Villiers - Christchurch
Tim Newman - Christchurch
All three have won the annual Tony Dunkerley Sport Writer Award – an award determined by five Panellists who marked the sport articles.
Writing sport for Christian Today with a Facebook following of 4.6m around the world is voluntary but it provides a ‘by-line’, name recognition and moreover great on your career CV with an international column.
