About This Project

John Olson


“I’m excited to be in a position that helps the Greenville community stay informed of important news and community events. I always enjoy a good conversation in person or our social channels. Don’t be a stranger, please say hello.”

John’s career in digital content management started in high school while competing for a local track and field team. He was always fascinated with interacting with sports reporters covering the events. He would look at the local paper every morning for the previous night’s competition results.

His media career started while in college working in a sports information department of a Division I program as a student worker and covering running throughout South Carolina. After college, he returned to his home and started at The Greenville News as the online sports and multimedia producer.

He brings to the Community Journal team an extensive background in journalism including video production, website management and experience in growing products in print and digital platforms for the community.

His hobbies outside of work include enjoying the outdoors Greenville has to offer, spending time with his two nieces, and going on road trips.
