Ryan Kupperman

My name is Ryan Kupperman and I am News Editor for the spring 2023 semester. I am a sophomore at Elon and have been a student journalist for almost 7 years. Check out my portfolio to see some more of my work. I enjoy long-form, in-depth news and feature writing, and I am hoping to get more experience in broadcast. I also love TV shows — my favorites being Daredevil, Better Call Saul, and Invincible. I’m looking forward to second semester and excited to edit the news!
