Patti Arnold

Senior Sports Writer

Job description

Patti is a sports columnist and covers Colorado Mesa University sports, plus leads coverage of the Alpine Bank Junior College World Series and the Grand Junction Rockies.

Education

University of Kansas, School of Journalism, 1981.

Bio

Patti grew up in Overland Park, Kan., and is the only member of her family to leave the greater Kansas City area. She worked at the Lawrence Journal-World and the Olathe (Kan.) Daily News before heading West in the fall of 1985. She has covered everything from trapping snapping turtles to Major League Baseball and the NFL, and among her career highlights are covering the World Series in Denver and photographing a Kansas-Kentucky basketball game, sitting on the sideline of Naismith Court at Allen Fieldhouse.

Personal

Patti shares her home with Sneakers, the world’s happiest yellow Labrador. Sneakers also loves the Jayhawks, but doesn’t like it when Patti yells at them during basketball games. Patti and Sneakers spend lots of time at the park and playing fetch or just chasing birds in the backyard, and like to take road trips together. Patti enjoys playing really bad golf, reading and movies, especially when the popcorn is fresh.
