Jonathan grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. With family from all over the country, Jonathan has a wide array of sports team interests. Jonathan is an avid Ohio State Buckeyes and Minnesota Twins fan. He attended the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and majored in history with a minor in journalism. Jon was involved in various campus media organizations throughout college.
He was the Senior Producer for Blugold Radio Sunday where he honed his skills in audio editing. Jonathan was the first all live format for his sports broadcast, The Final Whistle. He was also involved in the UWEC campus newspaper, The Spectator, where he was a sports columnist and tackled different social issues in sports every week.

With most of his experience in radio and print, Jonathan is excited to break into the TV market and learn a new craft. Being able to continue to live in Eau Claire is an added bonus.
