Jonathan started at NewsWest 9 as a Multiskilled Journalist in February 2020. He is originally from Houston, Texas, and is excited to stay in Texas with NewsWest 9. Jonathan is a huge Houston sports fan – especially when it comes to the Houston Astros.

Jonathan graduated from the University of Texas in May 2019 with a degree in journalism. While at UT, he gained a lot of experience in front of the camera volunteering for the school’s student-run television station: Texas Student Television. He spent considerable time covering the Texas softball and baseball teams. He also had the opportunity to host his own sports debate show called College Crossfire in the form of ESPN’s Around the Horn.

Jonathan is the only boy in a family with four sisters – two older and two younger. He is a big fan of animals. At one point, his house could have qualified as a small zoo. His family had five dogs, two birds, two hamsters, and a cat all at once for a few years.

Jonathan is excited to use all the skills he’s learned from each stop to share our community stories with you.
