Jeff Blakeman - Northern Michigan's News Leader

Jeff Blakeman

Posted: Updated:

Jeff Blakeman is a native Michigander, from Ypsilanti MI. He spent almost every summer of his teen years vacationing at different Northern Michigan lakes.

After graduating from Specs Howard School of Media arts in June of 2011, Jeff interned for Psychoathic Records as a cameraman, editor and did camera work for The Motor City Chiefs hockey team.

In November 2011 9&10 news came calling with a position working overnights as the editor and breaking news photojournalist for Michigan This Morning. Almost a year after working on MTM Jeff was promoted to a full time photojournalist based out of our Traverse City office. After a long, cold snowy winter of '12-'13 he came back down to work out of our Cadillac office.

When not at work you can find Jeff watching a Tigers, Red Wings or Lions game, watching a good movie or a TV show. As an avid sports fan no team lies higher on his favorite list than the Detroit Tigers.
