Resnick holds a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Media from Washburn University, spending three years as a reporter on the staff of the Washburn Review, and a Master’s degree in Sports Administration from Xavier (Ohio) University.
Resnick began his professional journalism career in 2013 as a reporter with the Fort Scott Tribune, providing coverage of the USD 234 school district, as well as the Fort Scott Community College.
He was promoted in the summer of 2014 to Sports Editor at the Nevada Daily Mail, where he remained until late last year. During his time at the Daily Mail, Resnick won multiple Missouri Press Association awards for his coverage of area athletics.
