“A past Boston/New England Emmy Award winner, Jones has nearly a decade of experience in television news, including a three-year tenure as a general assignment reporter in the Boston market. He also spent four years as an anchor and reporter for the NBC affiliate in Fort Myers, Florida, and at the ABC affiliate in Springfield, MA,” the company said.

“After working in local TV, Jones worked as press secretary for the Island of Bermuda, where he led crisis communications and media relations for the country’s highest elected office. In addition, he worked as General Manager for MediaHouse, the parent company for Bermuda.com, Island Press and the Bermuda Sun, where he spearheaded the operations, business development, sales and marketing efforts for a company with affiliates throughout the Caribbean region.

“Jones most recently worked as interim CEO and Chief Experience Officer for the Bermuda Tourism Authority, where he held a variety of leadership roles since 2015. During that time, Jones hosted the globally televised America’s Cup in 2017, secured the world’s first spectator-attended PGA Tour event since the start of the pandemic, and created a multi-year national tourism plan that directly helped to reshape the island’s relevance as a sports and luxury vacation destination.

“Jones received his Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism from Emerson College in Boston. He is a devoted Boston Celtics and Red Sox fan and is an active community volunteer with special interests in the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion, youth literacy and mentorship.”

    Typical. A talented Bermudian is not good enough for the Bermuda Government but he is sought after by the Boston media market, the 9th largest media market in America.

    The Great Bermuda Brain Drain continues. Even Glenn can’t take it anymore.

    Good luck on your next chapter, Glenn!
