Media Release: Fleet Street veterans, Bryan Cooney and Jim Black, launch website – promising ground-breaking articles and interviews


BRYAN Cooney, former head of Sport at the Daily Mail, and Jim Black, former chief sports writer for The Scottish Sun, share gems of a lifetime in journalism on their new website and digital venture.

‘No Grey Areas’ is an interview and discussion website aimed not only at restoring confidence in a much-maligned Fourth Estate, but also giving the public a real insight into the famous and how they conduct themselves.

Originally a sports website, it has broadened its base and now also embraces the worlds of films, theatre, music and books.

The accent will be on good journalism as they seek transparency from those who contribute far more than mere celebrity to our society.

Bryan says: “Jim and I have been involved in sports journalism all our working lives, we had the chance to meet and interview a large number of sports personalities and celebrities, many of these interviews covered personal subjects and shed light on human issues shared by us all.

“We feel the website gives us the opportunity to share our experiences and views in a completely transparent and neutral manner, as writers and speakers.”

The website was launched late in August with a number of fascinating audio and video interviews as well as articles on varied themes; from the use of social media by sports personalities to addiction.

One of the articles that caused the biggest stir was an article by Bryan Cooney himself, informing the public the reasons why he was quitting the Sunday Herald.

Bryan and Jim will invite contributors from the world of sports and entertainment to contribute with articles regularly, one of the contributors is actor, Derek Lord, who played Davie Sneddon, the provocative game keeper in the STV’s Take the High Road.
