She’s making a stir in the male-dominated world of football journalism, upping the glam-factor in the press room and making no apology for the directness of her questioning.
Sports reporter Rose Swarbrick, who covers Chorley FC and Fleetwood FC as well as sports clubs across the North West for titles including Lancashire Post and Chorley Guardian, will be chatting to Nicola Adam on her Sunday morning show.
Rosie, a born and bred Leyland lass, will talk about her reporting career so far, the challenges of the role and exactly what goes on behind the scenes at the football clubs.
Also as part of the Less Ordinary book club, she will be talking about her summer reading choices and her favourite football autobiographies.
Rosie said: “Only for Nicola would I get up this early for on the only day (ish) a sports reporter gets off!
“Hopefully it will be worth the lack of a lie-in!”
One not to be missed – tune into Lie in with Nicola on 102.8 Chorley FM or online from 9am on Sunday.
