Burvee joins T-R staff


The Times-Republican newsroom has gained a new staff writer.

Mike Burvee, a recent Iowa State University graduate in journalism, will be working as an intern this summer at the T-R.

Burvee, 23, a native of West Des Moines, will cover a variety of news and sports.

“We’re excited about Mike joining our newsroom team for the summer,” said T-R Editor Jeff Hutton. “We know he will be a great addition to our staff.”

Burvee has previously worked at ISU’s student newspaper, the Iowa State Daily.

“I come into (the T-R) with a background primarily having covered sports during my time at Iowa State,” he said. “Not knowing what I might be writing about on any given day will keep me on my toes and allow me to become a more well-rounded storyteller.”

Burvee will be the fourth Cyclone in the T-R newsroom, joining Hutton, fellow staff writer Adam Sodders and assistant sports editor Stephen Koenigsfeld.
