Kenneth Moton is an ABC News anchor and national correspondent responsible for covering major national and international news stories. In October 2019, he was promoted to the role of co-anchor of ABC’s World News Now and America This Morning. The shows are consistently the #1 rated early morning news programs. In May 2021, Kenneth was promoted again to national correspondent based out of Washington, DC. Since then, he has covered a number of big stories including the Haitian migrant crisis in Del Rio, TX, trucker convoy protests in Ottawa, Canada, and the 2020 (2021) Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. The DC-based journalist joined ABC News in June of 2015. Kenneth’s first assignment for the network found him back in his home state of South Carolina for the Charleston church massacre. In Washington, Kenneth quickly jumped into covering national politics with regular assignments at the White House and on Capitol Hill. During his time at ABC News, the 15-year veteran journalist also reported on the 2016 presidential campaign and election, natural disasters including Hurricane Harvey and the Las Vegas shooting massacre. Before Kenneth made his move to national, he spent more than a decade covering local news. From 2011 to 2015, Kenneth reported on a countless number of big stories while working for WPVI-TV in Philadelphia, PA: the Penn State scandal, Superstorm Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Baltimore riots and the deadly Amtrak derailment in Philadelphia. 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 an Abbeville, 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 « Read Less
