Kelly Jones Joins WPMI as Morning Anchor

WPMI has announced Kelly Jones will join the Mobile, AL, NBC affiliate as morning anchor.

Jones last worked as an anchor, reporter and host of “Better Kansas City” on Meredith’s Kansas City CBS affiliate KCTV. In June, “Better Kansas City” went on hiatus for the Summer.

“Kelly brings a lot of energy and experience to the position, and she has a solid reputation for reaching out and being involved in the community,” said WPMI general manager Bobby Totsch. “She will hit the ground running and become a big part of our commitment to covering local news that is important to our community.”

Before working for KCTV, Jones worked in California, Michigan, Montana and Arizona. Her first day at WPMI will be September 9.
