Parky is president

Talkshow host and Daily Telegraph sports columnist Michael Parkinson has been made president of the Sports Journalists’ Association of Great Britain. He succeeds Chris Brasher, the former Olympic gold medal-winning athlete and Observer sports writer, who died last year.

At the group’s annual meeting last week, Sunday Times journalist Peter Wilson was re-elected chairman and the general committee was re-elected en bloc, with the exception of Bill Bateson, who asked to stand down and was replaced by freelance television sports journalist Philip Barker.
