Jake joined us from Cleveland, Ohio in May of 2015 as a reporter after graduating from the University of Georgia. He realized quickly that his calling was behind the scenes after figuring out he could grow out his beard.
Now, Jake produces KBOI 2News First at 4. He believes he is an integral part of the newsroom, but would ask that you don't ask any of his co-workers their opinion. Jake loves Cleveland sports (even the Browns), indie movies, alternative rock, and bar trivia. He's also seen every episode of Top Chef twice, but is a terrible cook.
Jake also has a cat named Polly who likes to crush his chest whenever she gets the chance.
