ABOUT CHRIS REISNER
Growing up, I knew from a young age that my passion was in sports. I always joke that when my peers were reading fantasy novels in school, I was consumed in the 2005-06 NBA statistics almanac, marveling at how Allen Iverson averaged 33 points per game. I always knew I wanted to pursue a career in sports, particularly sports broadcasting.
I am currently a senior at Marquette University which is just about a 20 minute drive from where I grew up in Brookfield, WI. I study Journalism and Digital Media and have been active with student media and internships with different organizations.
At Marquette I broadcast men's and women's basketball, men's and women's soccer, and women's volleyball as the play-by-play commentator. My commentary for Marquette women's volleyball against High Point University won first place at the Midwest Broadcast Journalists Awards.
In the past year I accepted a position as the digital video intern with the Milwaukee Bucks. My duties include filming and editing mixes, creating highlight videos for social media, helping produce pregame shows, and working on longer form videos on our youtube channel.
During my sophomore year at Marquette I was our sports producer. I created dozens of video feature stories, game recaps, and episodes of our weekly sports television show which earned an honorable mention for best college sports show in the midwest. I also often anchored the show.
Some of my other work experience includes public relations with the Milwaukee Bucks, digital content with Marquette Athletics, a columnist at the Catholic Herald, production at 105.7 FM the Fan, and a sports reporting intern at WISN channel 12, ABC's affiliate here in Milwaukee.
