Klein has contributed stories and analysis to all ABC News broadcasts, including "Good Morning America" and "World News." He also provides regular political commentary and analysis for ABC News Radio, ABC News NOW and NewsOne, the network's affiliate news service.

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.

Starting in 2010, he began serving as Senior Washington Editor for "World News with Diane Sawyer," working as senior Washington producer for the program in addition to on-air roles.

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