Hi! I am George Murray, one of the Sports Editors at Hilltop Views. I am an english literature major and journalism & digital media minor graduating in spring 2021. In my 18 months at Hilltop Views I have written for the News, Life & Arts and Viewpoints sections as well as my own, and have enjoyed writing about a range of topical and national issues. I also have my own podcast and blog, and love to write and talk about sport, so I am really pleased to be in this role!
