ZAC Bailey is the new journalist at the Whitsunday Times.

Zac is a cadet journalist and replaces Ben Glover who has taken up a position on a daily newspaper in Wagga Wagga, NSW.

Moving here from the northern beaches this week was a big move but Zac is very happy to be here and is looking forward to his new role.

“To be given the opportunity to follow my dream in such a great place in the world is incredible,” an excited Zac said when he arrived on Monday.

“I don't think I could have found myself working in a better place in my first full-time journalist position,” he said.

“I'm looking forward to working at the Times and reporting on all matters that affect the community in both news and sport.”

Zac completed the HSC in NSW in 2008. He completed a Diploma in Journalism at Macleay College in 2009 and has previously completed work experience at The Manly Daily, Rugby League Week and Sports Tonight (Channel Ten).

He has also worked part-time for the Sydney-based magazine, Rugby League Review.

Zac is interested in most sports but has been a keen surfer and rugby league player since he was only 7-years-old.

He is also interested in reading autobiographies especially those of iconic figures, Andrew Johns and Ken Sutcliffe.

Zac hopes to bring the skills and knowledge that he's acquired in his studies and experience to the paper and the Whitsunday community.
