Madeline Coleman

Senior Sports Reporter and Senior Investigative Reporter

My name is Madeline Coleman, and I love writing. I'm from Raleigh, NC, but I am currently attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am a junior Business Journalism and Public Policy double major. I enjoy anything dealing with business, politics, the legal process, policies, pharmaceuticals, and sports.
I started writing for my high school paper during my sophomore year of high school. I was assistant editor and sports editor my junior year. During my senior year, I was Editor-in-Chief and Sports Editor. By the end of my high school career, I edited over a hundred articles, designed tens of pages for our school's newspaper/magazine, and wrote 20 pieces a year. I currently write for the sports desk at The Daily Tar Heel, and have been working there since Fall 2016 when I started at UNC. I am a senior sports writer and investigative writer for the DTH.
