Alex Ruppenthal is a 18-year-old student at the University of Missouri studying Newspaper Journalism. He is from Naperville, IL, which sits 40 minutes west of Chicago.
He has been in love with the city of Chicago since he came out of the womb. Alex's passion is the Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball. He is also a Bears, Bulls and Missouri Tigers fan.
Alex is a reporter for the Columbia Missourian in Columbia, Mo. Previously, he was a staff writer for The Maneater, the student newspaper at Mizzou. He covered primarily women's gymnastics and soccer. He has produced a sports trivia game show for MUTV, Mizzou's student TV station, and hosted a sports talk show on KCOU, Mizzou's student radio station.
Alex grew up an avid Fighting Illini basketball fan, but he has changed his allegiance to the Missouri Tigers since arriving in Columbia.
I hope you've been enjoying the new and improved Bleacher Report—we're really happy with the feedback we've received so far.
Just thought I'd let you know that next week we'll be launching the site to the world with some public announcements, and thus it'd be great to get a contribution from you between now and Tuesday to make Bleacher Report's launch a success.
Let me know if you need any help with ideas or have questions. Have a great weekend Alex!
