The Gold Coast Bulletin



FORMER Bulletin senior journalist Brian Mossop lost a lengthy battle with illness on Wednesday. Lots of noise occurs in a newsroom, but nothing compares to Brian’s laugh.

A feature writer after decades on the frontline of world sports reporting, his byline signalled a lengthy insight, where he did not copy and paste something from Facebook but sat for hours with his subject and then returned where the words flowed effortless­ly like his conversati­on.

Brian owned the booming voice in the office, the biggest smile, and kept a door open to all. We’ve lost a bright light among an ever-shrinking pool of retired, old-school journos.
