About Kieran Lynch

I’m Kieran Lynch, a high school sports reporter at Newsday on Long Island. I work to find the angles and anecdotes that give insight into the athletes I cover.

My reporting covers print, online and video as I cover different sports beats depending on the high school season. I write features, cover games, Tweet information and film videos highlighting important moments during the year. When I'm not reporting, I'm taking calls from coaches, editing sports round up pages or compiling professional sports box scores.

I completed my M.A. in journalism at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in 2015. I focused on expanding my skillset for a multimedia digital landscape, learning how to code websites, track their success and use analytics to grow an audience.

In undergrad at St. John's University, I wrote and edited for the independent student newspaper, The Torch. I worked my way up from sports writer to features editor to editor in chief and spent three years covering the St. John's basketball beat. I immersed myself in covering the team and growing an audience while beating major New York newspapers to breaking news. I ended my college experience by leading a newsroom of student journalists.

While at Syracuse, I expanded my reporting experience by covering a City of Syracuse beat that focused on low-income education and small business issues and a political beat that focused on New York government. While learning in the classroom and in the field, I also taught introductory graphics courses to Newhouse undergraduates that covered the Adobe Suite.

I’ve studied abroad in Rome and Paris, augmented my journalism education with a range of classes in history and closely follower political news. 

Other publications I’ve worked for include the San Francisco Chronicle, amNewYork and the Long Island Herald.
