He is a regular guest on Fox News and NPR programs, and has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, C-SPAN, and PBS, among numerous other television outlets. From 2007-2010, Klein wrote The Note, a daily political blog and tip sheet that publishes every weekday morning at ABCNEWS.com. The New Yorker magazine called The Note "the most influential morning tip sheet in Washington," serving as an insider's and outsider's guide to what's happening in politics and why.

Klein joined ABC News in 2007 from The Boston Globe, where he most recently covered Congress and national politics.

A native of Long Island, New York, Klein graduated with a degree in politics from Princeton University, where he served as editor-in-chief of The Daily Princetonian. He lives on Capitol Hill with his wife, Laine, and their sons, Jack and Max.
