Glenn Jones & Bermuda Day On Boston TV

May 27, 2023

Bermudian news anchor Glenn Jones has highlighted the Bermuda Day traditions through his role at the NBC10 Boston television station.

Mr Jones, an award winning journalist who joined the station in 2021, was surprised by colleagues who wore shorts to work to mark the occasion.

He posted a photograph of the television crew in their shorts and thanked them for getting into the spirit of the May 24 celebrations.

Mr Jones also presented Bermuda shorts to co-hosts Pete Bouchard and Priscilla Casper.

Mr Jones wrote on Twitter: “Today’s Bermuda Day [the traditional date anyway].

“My colleagues knew I’d be wearing Bermuda shorts; it’s where I’m from.

“So they schemed in secret to come to work in shorts so I wouldn’t be marking the occasion alone.

“Now that’s teamwork! Thanks guys. Warmed my heart.”

He also shared a clip from a news broadcast, including footage from previous Bermuda Day events.

Mr Jones told viewers: “If you’ve been watching this show carefully you’ve likely noticed I’m wearing shorts.

“Well, that’s not only because it’s a warm day, I’m from Bermuda originally, and today is Bermuda Day.

“It’s a cultural holiday on the island.

“Bermudians mark the day with a half-marathon, a parade, and, typically, it’s the year’s first day for hitting a pink sand beach and taking a dip in the ocean.

“For those of us no longer living on the island, throwing on our Bermuda shorts is one way to keep the culture alive.”

“I thought maybe I would surprise people by coming to work this way today, but they surprised me.” divider line ewrr

    Glenn seemed to be forced out of the BTA and still he does things like this for us.

    That is true class and love of Bermuda. We need more people like Glenn Jones.
