Oren Oppenheim

I'm currently a Political Unit Journalist for ABC News. I cover elections, campaigns, and polling, with an eye towards the 2024 presidential elections and how religion, law, and other factors intersect with the race for the White House. My reporting appears on ABCNews.com and supports ABC's on-air reporters.

I've also reported on regional news, the Jewish community nationwide, and other topics from courts to cartoons. My pitched stories have appeared on ABCNews.com, ABC's World News Now, and ABC News Live; while my field producing work has been on ABC's flagship shows Good Morning America and World News Tonight.

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.

Outside of journalism and writing, I enjoy discovering new places by public transit, taking photos, and trying out different coffeeshops.
