Michael Morrison

Freelance education reporter in the northwest

Student journalist Michael Morrison reports on education across Lancashire as part of his BA (Hons) university course, and works freelance for both regional and national press.

Described as both “passionate in pursuit of a story” and “angry and critical”, Michael became a journalist to speak for those without a voice, and to hold accountable those who make the decisions that affect their lives.

“I put the b******* of this world on notice that I do not have their best interests at heart. I will try and speak for my reader. That is my promise, and it will be a voice of ink and rage,” – Hunter S Thompson
