Blake Hornstein began his journalism career at Illinois State University covering local news and sports for the student TV and radio stations. The highlight of that experience was announcing Illinois State athletics on the radio for 6 different sports. Blake received his Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism in the Fall of 2021.
Blake joined the local 4 news team in February of 2022 full time as a MultiMedia Journalist. When he’s not at the station, Blake loves watching sports and spending time with his friends and family. Blake’s pallet of favorite pro teams is not quite your typical group. He’s a life-long Chicago White Sox fan thanks to his Dad’s influence (sorry Mom), but Blake also shares an affinity for the Green Bay Packers and the Boston Celtics. Blake also enjoy exercising, playing golf, and hanging out with his cat Ollie.
