Erin Greer

Managing Editor , American City & County

While most journalism graduates would jump at a chance to chase down the latest story, Erin Greer ran, screaming, from the opportunity. A long-time performer and PR professional, Erin was used to making the story...not harassing it out of bureaucratic agencies, school systems and government officials. Fortunately for Erin, however, the world of news finally caught up with her and knocked her on her back.

Initially winded by the journalism tackle, Erin quickly rebounded with her first story: a profile of an Episcopalian pastor skydiving for charity. It was her second day on the job. She was hooked. Since then, Erin has written for numerous local and national publications, been published countless hundreds of times, and covered beats ranging from sports and the arts to medicine, schools and politics.
