The FWA Interview: Paul McCarthyBy CHRISTOPHER DAVIES
Paul McCarthy still misses the adrenaline rush on a Saturday night he experienced when he was sports editor of the News of the World. The 19-hour shift - he left home at 6.30 and returned at 01.30 – did not bother him. Quite the opposite, he loved it.
“The time flew by,” he said. “It was brilliant, especially during the football season. I miss that buzz. I guess it’s like a footballer missing the craic of the dressing-room, the excitement of working with a team of people you like and respect.”
