Chris Vinel is the Miami Student’s editor-in-chief-at-large. Chris, a senior studying journalism and sports leadership and management, joined TMS on his first day of college classes and spent the last three years covering Miami sports. His dream job is following a Major League Baseball team as a beat writer. After traveling to many Miami away games the last three years, Chris is an expert on press box food — just ask him. His favorite articles to author are human interest stories that use sports as a backdrop to someone’s life. He also writes about and broadcasts Cincinnati-area high school sports for Chatterbox Sports. When he’s not working, Chris is often found at Skyline Chili or listening to Cincinnati Reds games on a transistor radio – yes, he is that much of a nerd.
