    Prior to joining NBC10, Jones was with ABC affiliate WTAE in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he spent two years as a reporter and anchor. Before that, he fulfilled the same role at WHSV in Harrisonburg, Virginia.  During his tenure as morning news anchor at WHSV, the station was awarded 'Best Morning News Show' by the Virginia Association of Broadcasters.

    Jones has distinguished himself as a solid journalist whose reports include the trial of former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky and the devastating 2013 tornadoes in Moore, Oklahoma.  He was an integral part of NBC10’s coverage of The U.S. Open at Lower Merion, and in 2013 he received a Mid-Atlantic Emmy Award for best morning newscast for his anchoring during breaking news coverage of a kidnapped child found safe.

    A native of New Egypt, New Jersey, Jones earned a bachelor's degree in communications from Villanova University, where he also minored in philosophy and journalism.   He currently serves as an adjunct professor of broadcast journalism at Villanova and in 2014 was honored with the university’s annual Ethos Award. The award recognizes an alumnus who serves as a role model to students by demonstrating character, service, and excellence in the field of communication.

    An avid sports fan, Jones once interned in the NBC10 Sports Department and was one of the team managers for the Villanova Wildcats basketball team.

    Jones serves on the board of Main Line Deputy Dog, an organization that helps people with physical challenges or mental health concerns train their own dogs to be fully-certified service dogs.  In his free time he enjoys playing the guitar and piano as well as exploring the local restaurant scene.
