Dave Doyle

UPDATED, NOV 2022: I am a freelance investigator, writer, editor, photographer and videographer with 11 years of experience in the newsroom; 10 as a reporter and one as a section editor.

Currently based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, I regularly undertake work for Reach Plc: Britain's biggest news publisher. My bylines have appeared in numerous regional, national and international titles.

I also undertake freelance copy editing work for academics and academic publishing houses, with three full-length works (This is Bop: Jon Hendricks and the Art of Vocal Jazz; Linguistic Penalties and the Job Interview; Two Bold Singermen and the English Folk Revival) and numerous journal articles to my name.

I previously read traffic and travel bulletins on Bauer Media radio stations Magic 999 and Magic 1152, as well as presenting a weekly community radio show on Redroad 102.4 FM, playing jazz/blues and talking about the people behind the music.

I have also hosted an award-winning web series (The Sneak Peek with Dave Doyle, Runner-up, O2 Media Awards 2013) and was the video production expert at Regional Media Ltd.

My special interests are health, social justice and the arts (particularly jazz, theatre and dance), but I'm happy to apply my skills to almost any topic you would like me to cover. Please get in touch if I can augment your news or feature coverage, particularly of goings-on in Gloucestershire.

Please see for examples of my most recent work.
