We’re delighted to announce that award-winning journalist and best-selling author Robert Beasley has joined the Newsline PR team.

We’ve moved to bolster the team after a string of new business wins during 2017, and our managing director Peter Robinson is confident the addition of the former chief sports correspondent for The Sun, will stand us in good stead.

He said: “We’re delighted Rob’s signed with us. We’re a team on the up, with big ambitions, and this shows our intent to build on the strong skill-sets we already have.

“The agency has achieved considerable growth over the past 12 months and we are now very much a national player.

“Rob brings with him a wealth of writing experience and an impressive contacts book. We pride ourselves on delivering the very best written word for our clients – on whatever platform that may be – and I’m certain we’re going to continue to achieve great things with Rob on board.”

Rob spent the past 30 years on Fleet Street writing for The Sun, News of the World and Press Association, during which time he interviewed worldwide stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Sir Steve Redgrave and Jose Mourinho.

As well as top jobs at Britain’s leading national newspapers, Warwickshire-born Rob has also recently published the acclaimed book “Jose Mourinho Up Close and Personal” to rave reviews.

He said: “It’s a fantastic new opportunity for me and I’m really looking forward to working with Peter and the Newsline team.

“They are a very talented, creative and ambitious group and I’m excited to join them and make my contribution towards realising their big plans for the future.

“I’m sure I will thrive in such a positive, focused and friendly environment.”
