Biography

Jake Zivin is the Sports Director of KEZI 9 News. He has been with KEZI 9 News since 2010, originally as a Sports Anchor/Reporter, before becoming the Sports Director in April 2012. Before coming to Western Oregon, Jake was the Sports Director at KECI-TV in Missoula, Montana. He spent three years with the NBC group of stations in Western Montana, starting his career in Butte, Montana, as a Sports/News Reporter for KTVM-TV. After nine months in the Mining City, he became the interim news anchor for KTVM in Bozeman before moving to Missoula to become the Sports Director of KECI and NBC Montana. Jake was born and raised in Evanston, Illinois, and graduated from Carleton College in 2007 with a degree in Mathematics. While at Carleton, he was the play-by-play voice of the Knights for four years, worked in the sports information department, and was the Editor-in-Chief of The Carletonian -- the school's student newspaper. Also during his college years, Jake interned in the broadcasting department of Major League Soccer, becoming the Clock & Score Operator for ABC/ESPN's broadcasts of MLS and the U.S. National Team. During his junior and senior years he worked on many soccer game broadcasts by ESPN, including two MLS All-Star games, an MLS Cup, and a World Cup qualifier. Jake loves covering sports in Western Oregon, and thinks it's pretty special being able to cover two Pac-12 teams at the same time. He is a die-hard Chicago sports fan, and when he's not working you can probably find him managing his fantasy MLS team.
