Packer Plus - - News - Pack­er­sNews.com

Jim Owczarski, who has cov­ered the Cincin­nati Ben­gals the past three-plus sea­sons for The Cincin­nati En­quirer, is the new­est mem­ber of our Green Bay Pack­ers re­port­ing team.

Owczarski, as a re­porter for the Mil­wau­kee Jour­nal Sentinel, will part­ner with Tom Sil­ver­stein, Pete Dougherty and Ryan Wood in cov­er­ing the Pack­ers for the Jour­nal Sentinel, Green Bay Press-Gazette, the USA TO­DAY-Wis­con­sin net­work and Pack­er­sNews.com.

"Jim has an eye for sto­ries that no one else is telling," said Mike Davis, the Jour­nal Sentinel's Deputy Manag­ing Ed­i­tor/Sports.

"His deep re­port­ing and sharp writ­ing will in­form and en­ter­tain read­ers. His anal­y­sis of the Pack­ers will tell fans the how and why be­hind the team's play. He'll tell the back sto­ries of play­ers.

“He'll in­ter­act with fans on so­cial me­dia as well as in chats, pod­casts and videos on JSOn­line and Pack­er­sNews.com. Jim will be an ex­cel­lent ad­di­tion to our Pack­ers team."

Be­fore Cincin­nati, Owczarski worked at OnMil­wau­kee.com and the Aurora Bea­con-News and Naperville Sun in Illi­nois.

A grad­u­ate of North Cen­tral Col­lege in Naperville, Ill., with de­grees in jour­nal­ism and so­ci­ol­ogy, he has won nu­mer­ous na­tional and state sportswrit­ing awards over the years. His fea­ture on for­mer Badgers and Ben­gals de­fen­sive line­man Tim Krum­rie's bat­tle with brain trauma was se­lected for the an­nual book com­pi­la­tion, The Best Amer­i­can Sportswrit­ing 2018.

Owczarski is mar­ried to Michelle Rutkowski, the pro­gram di­rec­tor for the Mil­wau­kee Ra­dio Al­liance’s three ra­dio sta­tions (WLUM, WLDB, WZTI).

You can fol­low him on Twit­ter at @JimOwczarski. His thou­sands of fans there will miss him in Cincin­nati (and Pack­ers fans will come to know him as a must-fol­low).
