Jon Rudder - Reporter/Storyteller
Jon Rudder is a sports anchor and reporter in Cleveland, Ohio.
Working for nearly ten years in the broadcast news industry, Jon has developed a thorough understanding of how to tell a compelling story across a variety of platforms. A large portion of that experience has been spent covering the Browns, including being a member of the Cleveland Browns Radio Network.
Since 2017 Jon has covered every Browns game at 92.3 The Fan, providing halftime and post-game updates and research and develop relevant storylines for the Cleveland Browns post-game show. He has also covered the Cleveland Cavaliers and Cleveland Indians as a beat writer.
Jon's reporting has also been featured on Browns Countdown, which airs on News 5 where he has been a reporter for the last six years. Jon has also produced feature pieces on the Browns that air during Building the Browns, which is the team’s Emmy-winning docu-series giving fans behind-the-scenes access to players and coaches from the off-season through the end of the year.
