About Us

ByTheMinute.co is a real-time platform offering comprehensive minute-by-minute coverage of live events from around the world. Nothing is beyond our reach, from the biggest events in sport to breaking news in world politics and international affairs.

We were founded in 2012 by the former Guardian sports columnist and author Lawrence Donegan. Since then we have established ourselves as a leading source of up-to-the-second reporting on live events. We currently have over 1,000 writers on our books, each which their own passions and unique knowledge. It is a matter of company pride that we venture into fields where more traditional media organisations can no longer afford to tread, offering opinions that very few dare to give voice to. Our list of contributors include award-winning authors, established national newspaper journalists and television presenters including Gary Lineker and Andrew Cotter.

Other media outlets offer minute-by-minute coverage but only ByTheMinute.co proivides coverage extending sport to politics, from television to the arts and culture. The sports we cover include football, rugby, rugby union, tennis, golf, NFL, baseball and cricket, to name just a few. We have also established the ByTheMinute.co Podcast Network - a series of weekly shows devoted to specific subjects, including Newcastle United, Celtic, golf, cycling and the WWE.

After attracting an audience of 150,000 Twitter followers, ByTheMinute.co launched it’s own real time website in late 2015, making its content accessible across all media. Plans for the future including expanding our coverage further into minority and grassroots sports, as well as the lifestyles and pursuits of growing army of users.
