IF YOU'RE involved with sports on the Fraser Coast there is a good chance you have dealt with the Chronicle's Matthew McInerney.

Matthew's passion for reporting on local sport is evident in the back pages of each Fraser Coast Chronicle and now he been announced as a finalist for the 2015 Australian Sports Commission Media Awards.

He is one of four journalists from across Australia to be selected in the 'best sports journalism from rural, regional or suburban media' category.

This is Matthew's second award nomination since he started as a journalist back in 2012.

It has been his drive to not only report what's happening during the game, but to also focus on the people playing it.

"It's not always what happens on the field that makes a story interesting," Matthew said about his nominated stories.

"I find the stories behind the players are the most interesting.

"Every one of our local athletes has a story and it's great to be in a position to share them."

The winners of the 2015 Australian Sports Comm- ission Media Awards will be announced at a gala dinner in Melbourne on November 26.
