Packer Plus - - News - Reiner

Olivia Reiner, the new­est mem­ber of our Green Bay Pack­ers re­port­ing team, will bring an en­hanced video and so­cial-me­dia fo­cus to our award-win­ning cov­er­age.

Reiner will join Tom Sil­ver­stein, Pete Dougherty, Ryan Wood and Jim Owczarski in cov­er­ing the Pack­ers for the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Mil­wau­kee Jour­nal Sentinel, USA TO­DAY NET­WORK-Wis­con­sin and Pack­er­

One of Reiner’s goals will be to pro­vide a higher level of video sto­ry­telling. She also will help iden­tify prac­ti­cal op­por­tu­ni­ties among an ar­ray of dig­i­tal and so­cial me­dia plat­forms, in­clud­ing Twit­ter, Face­book, In­sta­gram and Snapchat.

“Olivia will bring a new ap­proach to this im­por­tant, ever-evolv­ing po­si­tion,” said Green Bay Press-Gazette Sports Ed­i­tor Stu Court­ney. “She will use video and so­cial me­dia to broaden our Pack­ers cov­er­age and ex­pand its reach.”

Reiner, who earned un­der­grad­u­ate and mas­ter’s de­grees from the Medill School of Jour­nal­ism at North­west­ern, re­ceived the 2018 Wil­liam C. Fyffe Award and the 2018 Gary Cum­mings Me­mo­rial Award, honors given to a Medill stu­dent who ex­cels in broad­cast jour­nal­ism. Her work also has been nom­i­nated for a Chicago/Mid­west Na­tional Academy of Tele­vi­sion Arts & Sci­ences stu­dent award.

Reiner’s past work ex­pe­ri­ence in­cludes in­tern­ships with the New York Is­lan­ders, The Play­ers’ Tri­bune, NBC Sports Chicago, NBC Sports and WGEMTV in Quincy, Illi­nois.

Reiner also cov­ered the 2018 Win­ter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea as a free­lance re­porter. Her sto­ries and pho­tos ap­peared in print and on­line for The Philadel­phia In­quirer and AM New York.
