Sierra Newton
Name: Sierra Newton

Position: Sports Editor

Bio: Frankfort, KY native who loves the game of basketball so much that I coach the girls team at Dayton High School in Dayton, KY. My favorite food is anything that incorporates peanut butter and I’m a big dog person. After graduation, I’m aiming for a Sports Reporter/MMJ career. My ultimate goal is to be my own version of Doris Burke. I always got in trouble in grade school for talking, so going into a field where I talk about sports for a living is a perfect fit! 

Year/Major: Senior, Journalism and Electronic Media & Broadcasting

Favorite song, TV show or movie: “God is a Woman” by Ariana Grande
