James Rapien

James Rapien is the Bengals publisher and editor for Sports Illustrated. He earned a journalism degree from the University of Cincinnati and has spent the majority of his professional career in the Queen City. He remembers Jeremy Hill's heartbreaking fumble and wishes every Bengals season was as fun as the 2005 campaign. Rapien previously covered the Indians and Cavaliers in Cleveland. He can’t stand it when NBA players miss half of their free throws or when MLB players can’t bunt. He loves a good country song, but will listen to hip-hop most of the time. Rapien’s hobbies include movies, video games and traveling.
