Andi Petrini
Sports Editor
My Role

As sports editor, it's my responsibility to manage the department's print, online, mobile and social media efforts. But more important, I get to work with a talented group of veteran writers who make me look forward to coming into work. While we can't please everyone, our goal is to bring you local sports news you can't find anywhere else, mixed with a good dose of sports news that's of national interest. I welcome suggestions, comments and constructive criticism.
My Biography

I'm a Jersey girl with Southern tendencies. I grew up in South Jersey and attended college at Elon University in North Carolina, where I earned a bachelor's degree in journalism with minors in history and sports/leisure management. I've stayed south of the Mason-Dixon line since, with a stint at a small paper in Concord, N.C., before taking a position on the sports copy desk here in 2005. In June 2011, I was promoted to sports editor after spending six-plus years on the copy desk.
My Interests

My interests are varied, but by default, I enjoy sports. You name it, I've probably seen it live at least once - and that includes cricket! I also enjoy living near the water, traveling, reading, watching TV and movies, and enjoying good food and wine.
