Kerley, who joined the network in 2004, contributes regularly to all ABC News broadcasts, including "World News Tonight," "Good Morning America" and "Nightline," and ABC News' digital properties, including ABC News Radio, ABC News NOW and ABCNews.com. Kerley broke the news worldwide that some systems on missing jetliner MH370 were intentionally shut off. He recently has covered the Volkswagen emissions cheating story, as well as the Takata airbag recall. Kerley has traveled to every continent except Antarctica for ABC News, following Presidents, covering Presidential campaigns and several Washington based political battles on Capitol Hill. Since joining ABC News, Kerley has covered breaking news stories, including the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, several deadly mining disasters in West Virginia, and was the first ABC Correspondent on the scene of the Virginia Tech shootings. In August 2005, he covered Hurricane Katrina from the eye of the storm as it came ashore in Biloxi, MS. Following Katrina, he reported from Key West, FL as Hurricane Rita made landfall, and weeks later in Cancun, Mexico, he and his crew rode out more than 51 hours of Hurricane Wilma's Category 4 winds. During a half dozen assignments in Iraq, Kerley covered the beginning of the "Sons of Iraq" movement which helped end hostilities. Kerley broke news on adulterated products from China (lead paint on toys and contaminated pet food), and has reported from China on several occasions. Kerley has been honored with National and Regional Emmy Awards, a Peabody, and Edward R. Murrow awards for coverage at ABC News. His reporting on government spending earned him the prestigious Joan Barone award from the Capitol Hill Radio and Television Correspondents Association. Prior to joining ABC, Kerley spent more than 20 years anchoring and reporting in several cities. Most recently he was the primary anchor at WBBM-TV in Chicago, where he covered breaking news, including the terrorist attacks of September 11 and the 1999 Chicago blizzard.
