Paul Oren is a rarity among sportswriters at The Times. He's not actually from Indiana!

He was born and raised in Milwaukee and didn't arrive in the Region until he was 19. He holds both a bachelor's and master's degree from Valparaiso University. In between receiving both degrees, Paul served as Promotions Director at WLUM-FM in Milwaukee for three years.

As a sports correspondent, Paul goes wherever we tell him. Having written well over 1,000 stories for The Times, his favorite was when he drove to Monon to find the exact midpoint between Soldier Field and the RCA Dome prior to Super Bowl XLI. He wore his Green Bay jersey and laughed at both sides.

Paul is a beat reporter for Valparaiso University as well as various high school sports throughout the Region. He has covered NCAA tournaments in basketball, soccer, tennis and volleyball, along with numerous IHSAA state championship events.
