POSTED: 2:51 PM Sep 03 2013   UPDATED: 4:40 PM May 26 2014

Jonathan joined the WCTI StormTrack 12 team in August 2013 as the weekend morning meteorologist and weekday reporter.

Jonathan grew up in High Point, N.C., and is excited to be back at home in the great state of North Carolina.

Like most meteorologists, Jonathan knew exactly what he wanted to be at the age of 6.  When Jonathan was in the sixth grade, he became a "Van's Weather kid" for the FOX8 station in High Point.

Jonathan received his bachelor of science in meteorology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. After college, Jonathan moved to Lubbock, Texas, where he worked at KCBD-11 as the morning associate producer and filled in for weather.

From there, Jonathan moved to southern Texas, near the Mexico border, and became the weekend meteorologist and weekday reporter for KGBT-Action 4 News. There, he covered a wide range of weather events.

After spending a few years in southern Texas, he became the morning meteorologist at WABG ABC 6 in Greenville, Miss.

When not on the air, you will typically find Jonathan running through downtown New Bern or at the gym. Jonathan also likes to cook, so if you have any good recipes for him or news stories, feel free to send him a message.
