Oren Oppenheim

Welcome to my website. I'm currently a digital writer and assignment desk assistant for ABC News Washington. I help out with news gathering, field producing, and research, while also doing original reporting and writing. My reporting often covers politics and campaigns, but I also report on regional news and the Jewish community nationwide.

During the summer of 2021, I interned for ABC News' political unit, working on stories and reporting about elections, campaigns, and polls.

In 2020, I interned for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and concluded my tenure as a news editor for the the Chicago Maroon, capping three years on the paper.

During internships and freelance work for the Journal Sentinel, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Jerusalem Post, and the Jewish Link, I've covered a mix of hyperlocal and international news, including some significant stories and breaking news.

My journalism has been featured in POLITICO Illinois Playbook, Jewish Insider's Daily Kickoff, and across the USA TODAY Network-Wisconsin.

I've also done creative and communications work for University of Chicago Hillel, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Ramaz School. (This website is focused around my journalism and writing, which is separate from that work.)

Outside of journalism and writing, I enjoy rushing around campus to class (usually on time), watching Netflix, and discovering new places by public transit.
