Liam is so excited to live in the east and to be a part of the WITN News team! He joined WITN in May of 2020 as a Reporter and the Jacksonville Bureau Chief. Liam graduated from Elon University in May of 2020 with a degree in journalism and political science. He's originally from New York, but after spending four years in North Carolina, he just couldn't leave just yet!

Liam lives in Jacksonville with his best friend: His black lab, Forest. They're both loving documenting their new experience. Especially Forest, who can usually be found on his instagram at @forest_the_PB_king.

He fell in love with the journalism industry because it gives him the opportunity to meet new people and see and learn new and exciting things every day. He couldn't imagine himself doing anything else as a career. Right off the bat, Liam worked for his college news organization, Elon News Network, and was a summer news intern for ABC News 4 in Charleston, South Carolina. Both experiences ignited his passion for news and pushed him to pursue this career.

When not on-air, Liam can most likely be found on a beach with a good book, or watching political documentaries on any given streaming service.
