Jonathan is a 1996 graduate of Culpeper County High School. He attended George Mason University and majored in Communications with a specialization in Mass Media. After numerous internships at TV and Radio Stations, Jonathan finally settled in Radio at WKCW in Warrenton.

After Stan Karas volunteered to relieve the vacancy at Channel 21 in mid 2002, Jonathan began working as a freelance videographer. The lure of community television was too great, and he began as a full time Technical Director in 2004. After the passing of Stan Karas in May of 2007, another vacancy had to be filled. Along with other applicants, Jonathan applied to take over as Station Manager at Channel 21. In October of 2007, the Culpeper Cable Commission made the decision to make Jonathan Krawchuk the new Station Manager at Channel 21.
