Veteran Sports Journalist Patricia Traina Boosts Maven’s Sports Illustrated
SEATTLE — Twenty-year sports journalism veteran Patricia Traina delivers in-depth expert coverage of the New York Giants at SI.com. Traina’s NY Giants Maven is part of digital media coalition Maven’s (ticker symbol MVEN) Sports Illustrated brand, where individual teams receive premium in-depth coverage in their own channels by known sports mavens.
“I am truly excited by the opportunity to be a part of a more encompassing, in-depth approach at Sports Illustrated,” said Traina. “I’ve dedicated my career to getting to know the NY Giants organization, their players, and the forces behind the team on a very deep level. NY Giants Maven gives me the freedom to write what I know the fans want to read, give them a behind-the-scenes look at the men and moments that are part of their favorite team, and engage in our growing community on the NY Giants Maven site covering all things NY Giants.”
Traina has covered the Giants for more than 20 years. Her work has appeared in Inside Football, the Sports Xchange, Forbes, SB Nation, The Athletic - New York, Lindy’s Pro Football Annual Preview, and Bleacher Report. A member of the Professional Football Writers of America (PFWA), Traina is also the host and producer of the LockedOn Giants podcast, a daily Giants podcast featuring guests, analysis, and more. Her first book, “The Big 50: New York Giants: The Men and Moments that Made the New York Giants” is scheduled to be published by Triumph Books in early 2020.

Their collective experience at NFL Exclusive, Rivals, Sportsline, HBO, 5to1, Scout, and Fox Sports set the stage for senior leadership roles at Yahoo!, News Corp, Tribune Co., and more.
