Jonathan Bloom
Jonathan Bloom is a television news innovator who joined the ABC 7 News team after almost five years at rival Bay Area station KRON-TV.

He covers general assignments for ABC7's weekday afternoon newscasts.

Jonathan graduated from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism in 2000, and worked as a reporter, photographer and editor at television stations in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas and Colorado before landing here in California.

A gadget guru in his personal life, Jonathan strives to tell better stories through the use of technology while at work -- to illustrate complicated ideas more effectively and respond to breaking news more quickly.
