Karen Maree is a well-practised news editor who along with being just about the most avid sports fan in Oz, has also been in the media business for the best part of 20 years.
Starting out as a bright eyed and bush tailed young journo in Melbourne, Maree moved rapidly through the ranks and ended up producing a small, regional Rugby League magazine.
Moving on from print media to the wonderful world of online sports news, Maree joined the Panda Sports crew within her first week in Queensland and hasn’t looked back since.
Giving the Panda team the yay or nay on what goes live on the site, Maree is known to add her own stamp on the stories adding in interesting facts only a die-hard sports enthusiast could recall off the cuff as she does.
Up all hours catching the late-night international tennis, horse racing, soccer and cricket matches from around the globe, Maree loves to get in there and write her own sports news, reliving her early days playing in her local under-sevens footy team, so keep an eye out on the site for her work!
