Christina "Tina" Rivers Managing Editor & NFL Content Strategist

Christina “Tina” Rivers is a independent and credentialed sports journalist, author, analyst, and editor who has been an active contributor to several sports news networks and agencies including CBS Sports/CBS Local (including KDKA), Examiner, PFW, and more – with a primary focus on the Pittsburgh Steelers – for nearly two decades. She has also covered the Arena Football League (AFL, Iowa Barnstormers) and is active in the sports reporting community.

An Iowa-native, Christina is an alumnus of Brigham Young University where she majored in Exercise Physiology & Kinesiology and Sports Psychology. Before joining the sportswriting community, she worked primarily in emergency and critical care medicine.

Christina fell in love with the Steelers (and Terry Bradshaw) when she was five, and still has her first jersey (#12). She had dreams of playing in the NFL until she discovered softball and hockey as “her sports.” She is a 45-year collector of Pittsburgh Steelers cards, autographs, & memorabilia (1960s & 70s Topps cards are her retirement plan).

Christina enjoys spending time with her spouse, family & friends, and her “furry kids.” She is the author of one fictional novel and one Steelers non-fiction book and is working on several new writing, photography, painting, and art projects. She is also the owner of Rivertiger Arts, an independent art and design company.
