Jonathan comes to WTOC from Lexington, Ken., where he worked as a multimedia reporter and assignment editor for WTVQ, an ABC affiliate. Prior to WTVQ, Jonathan worked as an assignment editor for News 8 in New Haven, Conn., and he was a beat reporter for The Middletown Press in Middletown, Conn.
Jonathan is no stranger to Georgia. He graduated from Washington County High School, in Sandersville, Ga., in 2006. He earned a bachelor degree in journalism and a minor in communications from Southern Connecticut State University. While at SCSU, Jonathan worked for the student run newspaper as a reporter and advertisement manager, and for the television station SCSUTV as a reporter and anchor.
He has interned for News 8, The New Haven Register and Walt Disney World.
When Jonathan is not out looking for stories in the Lowcountry, he enjoys hanging with friends, visiting the beaches, participating in poetry readings, writing and spending time with family.
He is always looking to meet new people and hearing their stories. If you have a news tip or just want to say hello, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, follow him on Twitter.
