Jake Rohm started working at WDVM-TV in August 2019, just in time for High School Football! He has always been surrounded by sports his entire life and is excited to be able to cover sports in Northern Virginia.
Jake was born in a small town in central Pennsylvania (Turbotville). During high school, Jake was apart of the Football and Track and Field teams. In Track and Field, Jake was a two time District Champion and a State 6th in the Javelin Throw.
He went to college at Shippensburg University, where he was heavily involved in their campus station, SUTV. For his entire senior year, Jake was the Sports Anchor. He even co-hosted a radio show on the campus radio station, WSYC. For live events, Jake was Play-by-Play commentator, and was apart of SUTV’s Emmy award winning broadcast.
During his senior year, Jake interned at ABC27 in the sports department with the G.O.A.T. Gregg Mace. Jake also spent the summer before his senior year in Pittsburgh working with the Steelers.
When it comes to sports, Jake loves to cover them all. But he still has his favorites: Football, Track and Field, and Wrestling.
In his spare time, Jake likes to stay active by playing any sport with anyone. So, if you have a story idea or just want to have fun playing a game of football, basketball, etc, give Jake a call!
