Prior to landing in Philadelphia, Kenneth was a general assignment reporter at WFTV in Orlando, FL where he worked aggressively for four years to break stories in Central Florida.
He covered dozens of big news and weather events, but one of the biggest stories came in 2010 when Kenneth uncovered that a local police chief was using fake college degrees to get more money in his paycheck. Kenneth's reports led to the chief's resignation and criminal charges.
Kenneth is a South Carolina native who also worked in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina for News 14 Carolina, a 24/7 local news station owned by Time Warner Cable. He started his broadcast journalism career in Columbia, SC as an assignment editor and reporter at the CBS affiliate, WLTX-TV. Prior to that, he gained experience delivering news on Newsradio 560 WVOC, working as a video editor for WIS-TV, and interning for former South Carolina Governor Jim Hodges. Kenneth also worked in our nation's capitol as an intern for late former Senator J. Strom Thurmond.
Kenneth graduated from an intense journalism program at the University of South Carolina College of Mass Communications and Information Studies with a B.A. in broadcast journalism and a minor in panish. He was one of three Carolina Marching Band drum majors at USC, a brother of Kappa Kappa Psi, a national honorary fraternity for college band members, and a student in the
USC Honors College.
