Jeff Goldberg is the Virginia Bureau Chief for ABC7/WJLA-TV and NewsChannel 8, focusing on news across the Northern Virginia region.
For Jeff, arriving at ABC7 News is an exciting homecoming. He was born at George Washington University, raised in Potomac, and attended Georgetown Day School in Northwest Washington.
The return home has been years in the making. After attending the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Jeff worked at television stations in Helena, Mont., Fort Myers, Fla., and San Diego, Calif. His last stop was in Minneapolis/St. Paul, where he served as the Senior Political reporter, covering state and national politics. Jeff also earned 2 regional Emmys in the Twin Cities, along with several nominations.
Whether it’s covering breaking news, politics, or a light feature story, Jeff’s love of reporting is always strong. He says he’s incredibly fortunate to have such an exciting and fascinating job.
When not working, Jeff enjoys traveling, being active outdoors, and spending time with friends and family. Jeff’s sisters and their families live in New York, and his mom remains in Maryland, so the return to the East Coast is great for the whole family.
