Jonathan’s career started the way most people’s careers did – in his youth, around the time he was still in University. His journalism career began at Columbia University, where the young man spent four years from 1997 to 2001. Jonathan majored in history during his time at the university and worked for the school publication as a student journalist.
Upon graduating, he worked for the New York Daily News, where he was making $200 a week. Jonathan’s focus was on shootings, fires, and affairs back then. The newspaper didn’t intend to hire him after his internship. But, they allowed him to work there a little longer.
Tragedy struck as the world looked on to the United States as terrorists attacked them. September 11, 2001, saw two hijacked planes hit the World Trade Center. It became one of the most catastrophic events to have ever happened in the United States, if not the world.
However, the tragedy would become an opportunity for the journalist. The New York Daily News told him a week prior that they had no intention of hiring after his internship.
But he eventually became part of the staff and was busy with the 9/11 incident during and after the tragedy.
The public may view the journalist’s credentials on his LinkedIn profile which boasts over 20 years of experience. He spent 20 years as a reporter for New York Daily News and the Associated Press.
For the last four and a half years, he was a political analyst and MSNBC’s Way Too Early host. Currently, Jonathan is the bureau chief of the White House and is responsible for coverage relating to the Biden administration. Jonathan Lemire Wikipedia page doesn’t exist.
