Meghan Rest, Sports Editor

My name is Meghan Rest and I’m pursuing a degree in journalism. I’m also on the pre-law track and minoring in public relations with a certificate in sports media. I’ve worked at The Daily Illini since my freshman year. I started out as a beat reporter covering tennis and track, then spent most of my sophomore year writing about the women’s basketball and volleyball teams. My junior year I was lucky enough to work as one of our assistant sports editor. When I’m not at the DI, I'm either working out or binge-watching "It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia". Even though I'm from central Illinois, I'm a die hard Indiana Pacers fan and love the Chicago Cubs. I’m super excited to take on the role sports editor! I look forward to aiding the production of some pretty amazing content.
