John Baker

John has lived the local area for almost 40 years and in Peterborough for almost a decade. He started his reporting career in 2005 at the Spalding Guardian before moving to the Peterborough Telegraph in 2010, eventually running the features desk. There, he covered everything from council meetings and police raids to beer festivals and the PGER, thoroughly enjoying every minute of it.

In 2014 he moved into marketing at Zazzle Media and then Peterborough City Council, combining a passion for writing with skills in videography and photography. He's proud to live in Peterborough and thinks it is an underrated city - but not by those that know it best.
