Jenny Vrentas Scores a Big Gig

Vrentas.jpgPeter King, the Sports Illustrated veteran who is arguably the most widely read NFL writer in the country, this week launched the SI spin-off site Monday Morning Quarterback. It’s a big deal in the sports media world, and for the handful of writers King tabbed to join him, one of the most coveted gigs in the business. So congrats to Jenny Vrentas ’06, a biochemistry and molecular biology major turned sportswriter who is one of three writers joining King at MMQB. Vrentas spent the past six years with the Newark, N.J. Star-Ledger before joining SI in May, and this week she was unveiled as part of the MMQB team. Nicely done, Jenny.
