Jake McDonnell – Founder
Born in the Charm City and raised in York, Pennsylvania, Jake McDonnell grew up a Baltimore sports fan. The obsession with the Ravens and the Orioles lasted throughout childhood into high school, with McDonnell often seen wearing purple or orange.
Midway through his freshman year at Bloomsburg University, McDonnell turned his passion into a career, switching his major from Accounting to Mass Communications, with a concentration in Telecommunications and a heavy focus in Journalism. Fast-forward two years later, midway through McDonnell’s junior year, and Charm City Bird Watch was born.
McDonnell graduated from Bloomsburg in May of 2018. He spent the next 20 months working as a producer at 105.7 The Fan, a station he’s listened to dating back to attending his first Ravens game with his father in 2006. McDonnell has produced broadcasts for the Orioles Radio Network and the Ravens Gameday Uncensored Pregame Show.
In January of 2020, McDonnell left The Fan and Charm City Bird Watch to explore new opportunities in Nashville, Tennessee.
