Jon Shirek

Hello, Everyone!

I'm a reporter with WXIA-TV / WATL-TV / in Atlanta, GA.

I was born in a blizzard in Fargo, ND. Fourteen winters later our family moved to Melbourne Beach, FL, and eight years after that, on a sweltering but sparkling June day in Gainesville, FL, I graduated from the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications, the place where I'd gotten my start - reporting for the Independent Florida Alligator, WRUF-AM and WTLV-TV.

WTLV, in Jacksonville, hired me full-time after I graduated, and a few years later I moved to Atlanta and 11Alive.

So I love the snow, the beach, the north Georgia mountains, Piedmont Park, and whenever I can - never often enough - I enjoy exploring the world, near and far.

And I'd love to hear from you.
