During her time with The Observer, Greason has covered a wide variety of Notre Dame sports teams, including football, women’s basketball and volleyball.
“The Observer plays such an important role in serving the Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s communities, so I am very grateful to have the opportunity to take on an increased leadership role,” Greason said. “I’m sure we will face challenges this year, but I am confident that this is a fantastic team and that we are equipped to handle everything thrown at us.”

He has most recently served as Associate News Editor, during which time he covered Vice President Mike Pence’s selection as the 2017 Commencement speaker and the subsequent response, political activism, speakers on campus and student government elections.
“I’m really looking forward to getting to work with such great people to help inform the campus community,” Masin-Moyer said. “Working with The Observer has been one of the great privileges of my college experience, and I cannot wait to see what the next year has in store.”
