Kenneth Moton
Kenneth Moton joined the Action News team in April 2011. Since his start at 6abc, Kenneth has reported on a countless number of big stories including the Occupy Philly eviction and the 'Penn State Scandal'. He also braved the elements during Hurricane Irene which impacted the Jersey Shore in the fall of 2011.

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 Spanish. 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.

Kenneth quickly learned social media is a great way to effectively communicate with Action News viewers and alert them to breaking news stories. Follow him on Twitter @Kenneth Moton and "Like"

When he's not digging up and researching stories, Kenneth enjoys exploring everything the Delaware Valley has to offer.
