Jonathan joined WEAU in June of 2019 after graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire with a degree in History. He grew up in Eau Claire, graduating from North High School in 2012.

While at school, Jonathan was very active in Blugold Radio Sunday, a student run radio program, overseeing their award winning sports show. He also wrote for the university's newspaper, The Spectator. Through these organizations, Jonathan developed a passion for news and telling community stories that matter.

Jonathan was born in Columbus, Ohio which means he is a big Ohio State fan. When not cheering on the scarlet and grey, he enjoys golfing, fishing, and relaxing.
