Kim Ippolito

Sports Editor, The Chronicle

As sports editor of The Chronicle, Kim has quickly become a better reporter and broadcaster. In addition to researching and writing her own articles, she coordinates brainstorming sessions and edits the work of other writers.

“I no longer fear approaching people to interview them or worry about asking the wrong questions,” Kim says.

An added bonus: When applying for internships and jobs, she says interviewers “like to see that I have writing experience on my résumé. They ask questions about what I’ve written for the paper.”   

Recently Kim landed an internship with the Chicago Slaughter professional indoor football team, where she helped with public relations, web writing and social media. She also served as a promotions intern for 101.9 FM The Mix and 100.3 FM Rewind. For Naperville Community Television, she wrote, reported, taped and edited broadcast material.
