Reporter/anchor Jonathan Hardison anchors Sunday nights and reports during the week. He joined the team in October 2007. Prior to that, he spent two years as a reporter/fill-in anchor at 14WFIE-TV in Evansville, Indiana, and the previous 2 years as the 10pm anchor at WBKO in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where he won a KY Associated Press award for his part in the continuing coverage of the murder of WKU freshman Katie Autry.
Jonathan graduated Summa Cum Laude from Lipscomb University in Nashville in 2003, after interning at WTVF and WSMV in Nashville. In college, he anchored newscasts on 650 WSM-AM, the home of the Grand Ole Opry.
Jonathan grew up in Lexington, but has lived in New York City, Minnesota, Memphis, and Atlanta as well. Though Kentucky may be a border state, Jonathan has always considered himself a Southerner and is willing to root for the Tide and Tigers (as long as they're not playing his beloved Wildcats).
From the time he was 5 and dressed up as Bryant Gumbel, Jonathan has known he wanted to be a journalist, and considers it a privilege to be working as part of the best and most-watched news team in Alabama.
In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his wife (a Samford grad), working out, playing drums, watching almost any sport (especially UK basketball), hanging out with family/friends, and volunteering at his church.
