Meet the Informer: Alex Ortiz


Alexander Ortiz, Editor in Chief

Name: Alex Ortiz

Year: Senior

Position: Editor-in-Chief

Major: Digital Media and Journalism 

I joined The Informer my sophomore year because I heard that there was help needed with the website, along with creating a social media account. I wasn’t the strongest writer when I first joined, but after editing many articles before publishing them online, it really helped me to strengthen my own writing skills. 

As Editor-in-Chief, my job is to oversee The Informer’s weekly publication and create content to publish on our website and social media platforms.

When I am not writing for The Informer, I’m usually working on projects for different classes or hanging out with friends. I’m also the Vice President of the Sports Business Association, where I help promote our events for people to attend. Their Instagram is @uhartsba. Also, I am an intern for Belly Up Sports, where I assist in creating content for their social media. 

I am from Hauppauge, New York, where my parents raised me. Fun fact, I also have a twin brother, along with a younger sister. After college, I plan to find a job or an internship in my field of interest. 

If anyone has questions, would like to chat, or is interested in becoming part of The Informer staff, please contact me at [email protected].
