Name: Billy Keeney

Major: Journalism

Minor: Cinema Studies

Role: Story Editor

I’m the News Editor for The Northerner, NKU’s independent, student news organization. In my free time, I dabble in photography, spend countless hours consuming classic cinema and hangout with my cat, Ridley.

I’m a devoted reader to The New Yorker and The Atlantic, but you can also catch me reading a good New York Times article, while drinking Ale-8 (the only drink that matters). 

I can’t wait to meet all of you and help grow your passion for news and media. 


Favorite Social Media: Twitter because it’s unfiltered. 

Dream job: To be an editor for the Times. 

Fun Fact: I build keyboards from scratch.
