NBC10 Anchor/Reporter



    Keith Jones joined NBC10 in 2012. He currently co-anchors NBC10 News at 5 PM and files reports for NBC10 News.

    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. In 2015, Jones reported live from Super Bowl 49 in Glendale, AZ, and later that year, played a vital role in NBC10’s coverage of Pope Francis’ historic visit to Philadelphia.

    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 has served as an adjunct professor of broadcast journalism at Villanova since 2013. In 2014 was honored with Villanova University’s annual Ethos Award, which recognizes an alumnus who serves as a role model to students by demonstrating character, service, and excellence in the field of communication. The same year, Jones was awarded Villanova University’s Young Alumni Medallion, bestowed upon one University alum annually who excels in his/her professional endeavors and demonstrates ongoing service to the community and the University.

    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 is an active member of the community. He 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. He also actively supports Turning Points for Children, which supports families in raising safe, healthy, educated and strong children by partnering with caregivers. He’s also been actively volunteering for the American Red Cross of Southeastern PA since 2012.

    In his free time he enjoys playing the guitar and piano as well as exploring the local restaurant scene.
