Mick Ord: Adoption, Discovery and The Power of Memory

Journalist, Media Consultant, Producer and Podcaster, Mick Ord is a legend among the broadcast press of Merseyside. A former head of BBC Radio Merseyside, he has covered such events as Heysel, Hillsborough, the Warrington bomb and Liverpool’s successful bid for Capital of Culture. He was NUJ Regional Journalist of the Year in 1990 for his documentary on the Cheshire Regiment in Northern Ireland and has since gone on to become a media consultant specialising in crisis management.

He’s also adopted, and the journey to discover his Irish roots is at the heart of our podcast, along with the unique marketing power of teabags.
