Jack is so excited to be covering the passionate college and high school sports fans in Iowa.

Since joining the KCRG-TV9 Sports Team, Jack has reported from the Field of Dreams game, the NCAA Final Four, Drake Relays and more. Jack has always loved sports, and he truly fell in love with the art of journalism and storytelling in college. He studied at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, graduating in June 2021. He gained experience in reporting, play-by-play and writing. He's earned recognition from the Sportscasters Talent Agency of America, the Chicago/Midwest National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and the Society of Professional Journalists.

Originally from Long Island, New York, Jack is a huge fan of the Giants, Yankees, Nets and Islanders.

He's covered the Big Ten Championship, NCAA Women's Lacrosse Tournament and the Big Ten Women's Basketball Tournament. So far, he's been to 7 out of 14 Big Ten football stadiums.

Outside of being a sports nerd, Jack's other interests include food - whether that's cooking or finding the best burgers in the country - the Marvel Cinematic Universe, pop culture and U.S. history.
