Mark Newbold

Mark Newbold was first caught in the Star Wars tractor beam back in late 1977, when Star Wars finally arrived in the UK. After three years of running general sci-fi sites he launched his first Star Wars website -- Wirezone -- in 1998, which became Lightsabre in June 1999. After a decade as one of the UK's best known Star Wars sites, it merged with Jedi News in August 2010. Mark is currently the daily content manager and co-owner of Jedi News, has written for Star Wars Insider since 2006. He writes for The Metro blog and co-hosts RebelForce Radio’s RADIO1138 podcast with James Burns.
