Kliment graduated with a Bachelor’s and Master’s from Full Sail University in Sports Management and Marketing after completing American Broadcasting School. Jon spent four years as a broadcaster for SUNY Broome and Binghamton University’s hockey programs before serving as a Color Analyst for the CWHL’s Boston Blades whilehe participated in an internship with the AHL's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in Media Relations.
