A Bermudian journalist living in Boston has been nominated for three Emmy Awards.

Glenn Jones, a television anchor for NBC 10 Boston, has had three video segments join the running for the 47th annual Boston/New England Emmy Awards.

Mr Jones shared his feat over Facebook and Instagram, where he wrote: “I’m so proud of this work and very grateful for the talented team of people I get to collaborate with every day.”

Mr Jones’s segment Sneaker City: From the Ground Up, where he served as a writer, was selected for the Magazine Programme Category.

Veteran Benefits Denied was nominated for the Military News Division category, and is up against four other nominees.

For the Breaking/Spot News Multiple Reports section, Mr Jones was nominated alongside a team of ten other journalists for their segment Lewiston Maine Mass Shootings.

They will be up against four other news segments in this category.

Mr Jones, a former Royal Gazette reporter, joined NBC 10 Boston in 2021, where he became a household name along the East Coast.
