WBTS Boston And NECN Names Glenn Jones News Anchor & Reporter
NBC-owned WBTS Boston and cable news channel NECN have added Glenn Jones as anchor and reporter. Jones begins his new role on Monday, Nov. 1. He will make his on-air debut later in the month.
A past Boston/New England Emmy Award winner, Jones has nearly a decade of experience in television news, including a three-year tenure as a general assignment reporter in the Boston market. He also spent four years as an anchor and reporter for NBC affiliate WBBH Fort Myers, Fla., and for ABC affiliate WGGB Springfield, Mass.
After working in local TV, Jones worked as press secretary for the Island of Bermuda, where he led crisis communications and media relations for the country’s highest elected office. In addition, he worked as general manager for MediaHouse, the parent company for Bermuda.com, Island Press and the Bermuda Sun, where he spearheaded the operations, business development, sales and marketing efforts for a company with affiliates throughout the Caribbean region.
Jones most recently worked as interim CEO and chief experience officer for the Bermuda Tourism Authority, where he held a variety of leadership roles since 2015. During that time, Jones hosted the globally televised America’s Cup in 2017, secured the world’s first spectator-attended PGA Tour event since the start of the pandemic, and created a multi-year national tourism plan that directly helped to reshape the island’s relevance as a sports and luxury vacation destination.
Jones received his Bachelor of Science degree in broadcast journalism from Emerson College in Boston.
