Liam just began his new journey in journalism as the Jacksonville Bureau Chief and Multimedia Journalist at WITN News. After a challenging job search in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, beginning a career as a broadcast reporter in this way was certainly not how he imagined it. He is a 2020 graduate of Elon University. He graduated with with degrees in journalism and political science and a minor in American Studies. Home is the Hudson Valley, New York. Passionate about the media and politics, he stays up-to-date on all that's going on in the world by keeping his platforms updated with the most recent events and stories from politics, business and breaking news. He's a self-proclaimed elections nerd and is always diving deep to national to local elections to see coming political trends. He's reported on everything from the energy of caucus-goers in Iowa, how the national opioid epidemic is affecting the local community, a coffee shop employing people with disabilities, to candidates running for North Carolina state senate. He has continued to be shocked and amazed by ordinary people doing extraordinary things, and telling those stories is what keeps him coming back to this field for more.
All of Liam's digital platforms represent him and his driven personality in a way that no resume or cover letter ever could. While he's a journalist in the head, he's a storyteller at heart. His best and favorite stories he's had the privilege of being a part of have been those that have allowed him to dive deeper into personal stories, get creative, and have expanded the way he sees the world.
During the winter term of his senior year at Elon, he was privileged enough to be accepted for the Iowa Caucuses course. For the class, he traveled to Des Moines, Iowa to report on-the-ground on presidential candidates, voters, and supporters to get an understanding of the political universe that you can't get anywhere else. In Iowa, Liam interviewed Republican Bill Weld, Democrat John Delaney, former Secretary of State John Delaney, and former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner. Photo Credit: Mark Dalhouse
