Jonathan Perez joined the 13WMAZ team in September of 2016 as a Sports Multi-Skilled Journalist. Jonathan came to WMAZ after working in Miami at WTVJ as an Associate Sports Producer. He also interned with them in 2013 where he covered the Miami Heat during the NBA Finals.
Jonathan was born and raised in Miami, Florida and earned his Bachelor's in Telecommunication from the University of Florida. During his tenure at UF, he was the WUFT 5 p.m. Sports Anchor and covered North Central Florida high school sports as well as University of Florida Athletics. He traveled to Omaha, Nebraska for the College World Series, and also covered the Florida Gators in Atlanta for the SEC Championship game against the Alabama Crimson Tide.
When Jonathan is not watching sports, he enjoys eating Cuban food (especially his grandmother's), watching super hero movies, and playing sports with his friends.
Although Jonathan is in Bulldog territory, he is beyond thrilled to be in Central Georgia and would love to share your story! You can email Jonathan at jmperez@13WMAZ.com, or tweet at him @_JonathanMPerez.
