Jonathan Hawgood joined the News 5 team as a general assignment reporter in November 2003. He became an anchor on News 5 Today Weekend in October, 2008.
Hawgood said it's nice to be working in his native hometown. He'd spent some time working at WXIX before he came to WLWT.
Hawgood said what he likes most about reporting is being challenged to make every story as interesting as possible, and in the process meeting all different kinds of people. He also said his proudest professional achievement was in his first live interview, when he spoke to Martin Luther King III the week he was elected leader of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.
On the flip side, Hawgood recalls the time he did a live report with his fly down as his most embarrassing moment on the job.
Hawgood said he prefers dinner at Skyline over any high-priced restaurant. "The folks at Skyline in Oakley always treat me like I'm family," he said.
The former college athlete still enjoys running and spending time with his wife Lucie, and their children, William, Gabrielle and Annelise. His e-mail address is email@example.com.
