My name is Christian Simmons, and I recently graduated from the University of Central Florida with my master’s degree in integrated business management. My undergrad degree is in journalism, also from UCF.

I’m passionate about sports in all its forms. I’ve had internships with the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Orlando Sentinel, Orlando NPR affiliate WMFE-FM and CBS affiliate WKMG-Channel 6. I’m also the co-founder and editor of Knight Sports Now, a student publication that has covered UCF sports since 2017.

As a freelance reporter, I have also written for the Dallas Morning News, the Times-Picayune in New Orleans, The New Orleans Advocate, The Advocate in Baton Rouge, La. and the Baltimore Sun.
