A Bermudian journalist will start as a TV news anchor and reporter on Monday for a major broadcaster on the US East Coast.

Glenn Jones, a former reporter with The Royal Gazette, is to start at NBC10 Boston News and New England Cable News on November 1.

NBC10 Boston announced Mr Jones would make his on-air debut later in the month.

The station covers Greater Boston, Southern New Hampshire and Northeastern Massachusetts.

NECN has 3.6 million subscribers across New England and is billed as the biggest 24-hour regional news network in the US.

Mr Jones was praised as a “very talented journalist” by Chris Wayland, the president and general manager of NBC10 Boston, NECN, Telemundo Boston and NBC Sports Boston.

Mr Jones worked for the Bermuda Tourism Authority as its interim chief executive and chief experience officer before stepping down earlier this year.

In 2007, Mr Jones was awarded an Emmy for his TV work in Boston. That same year, he was appointed press secretary under Ewart Brown, the former premier.

He was also general manager of MediaHouse, which ran Bermuda.com, Island Press and the Bermuda Sun.

Mr Jones comes with several years’ experience in Boston journalism.

He spent four years as an anchor and reporter for the NBC affiliate in Fort Myers, Florida, and at the ABC affiliate in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Mr Jones has a bachelor of science degree in broadcast journalism from Emerson College, Boston, and is said it be a keen fan of the Boston Celtics and Red Sox.

The broadcaster said his interests included diversity, equity and inclusion, youth literacy and mentorship.
