Congratulations to WFTV-Channel 9 reporter Kenneth Moton. He is leaving the ABC affiliate in late March to go to WPVI, the ABC station in Philadelphia.
“He’s a good young man. We’ll miss him,” news director Bob Jordan said today.
In an e-mail, Moton wrote, “WFTV has been such a great experience. I’ve worked hard, the station has invested in me, and the team at Channel 9 is one of the best in the business. I’m thankful for Bob Jordan and this station for taking a chance on me four years ago. I’m going to miss Central Florida and its great weather! This opportunity in Philadelphia is an exciting move in my career, and I will definitely take what I learned here and use it to do my best in Phillly.”
Before joining WFTV, Moton worked for News 14 Carolina, a 24/7 operation in Raleigh, N.C. Moton, a South Carolina native, earned a B.A. in broadcast journalism from the University of South Carolina.
