62: Mark Coyle, Head of Media at Velon
Mark Coyle was at the BBC for almost 20 years as journalist and then editor, where he helped launch BBC News online, Democracy Live and ended his time there with a very successful 2012 Olympics. He then moved onto BT Sport as Head of Digital Production, working on the launch of the brand new channel. And is now Head of Media within the world of pro cycling with Velon.
In this very enjoyable chat with Mark we covered a large number of topics including how he’s helping new audiences discover and understand pro cycling, who Velon are, badgering the boss of his local paper to get his first role in journalism and the results of the newly launched Hammer Series.
