There is a new face in town, and he is part of the team at The Times.

Taylor Harvey is the newest journalist at your local newspaper, replacing Jack Manning, who has relocated to Adelaide for a new job opportunity.

Taylor is originally from Tintinara and graduated from the University of Adelaide with a Bachelor of Media with a major in journalism.

He moved to Bordertown in March 2019, plying his trade as the sole journalist at the Border Chronicle, his childhood paper.

The 25-year-old has now taken up the third journalist role at The Times, and is keen to share the stories that can be found on the Fleurieu Peninsula.

"I truly look forward to immersing myself in the Fleurieu Peninsula and getting to know the many great people who make this one of the state's most respected regions," he said.

"Working alongside two experienced journalists, Michael (Simmons) and Dani (Brown), it will allow me to improve the many skills needed in this profession, and ultimately produce a better standard of work."

He said he had always loved listening to people tell stories that mean something to them.

"When someone is passionate about something you can really immerse yourself in that conversation," he said.

"Journalism allows for people like myself to share those stories to a greater audience.

"Many people believe they don't have interesting stories, but you'd be surprised by how incredible most people are."

Outside of journalism, Taylor's biggest passion is sport. Over the years, he has played football, soccer, cricket, tennis, and basketball.

"I have been able to represent Australia at Paralympic level for soccer, however, I have now started to pursue 1500m running," he said.

"Despite 'retiring' from football in 2019, I have recently found the motivation to get on the field again - I feel sorry for the football club I decide to join."
