Kenneth Moton’s Career
The Abbeville native attended the University of South Carolina where he received a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism. Moton started his career in 2002, as a general assignment reporter and editor at Columbia, South Carolina’s WLTX-TV.
He moved to North Carolina in 2005, joining Raleigh-Durham’s News 14 Carolina as a reporter. Two years later, he was a reporter at Orlando’s WFTV, where he remained for almost four years.
Kenneth Moton came to ABC News from Philadelphia’s WPVI-TV. He was a reporter at the ABC affiliate for four years.

Kenneth Moton’s Relationship
Kenneth Moton married Brandon Jones on March 7, 2020, after five years together. Their story on their wedding website would reveal just how fated they were.
Jones also hailed from South Carolina, growing up in Conway. They both attended the University of South Carolina at the same time and had a lot of mutual friends.
But they wouldn’t meet or talk to each other until they were both working in Pennsylvania in February 2015. A mutual college friend nudged Moton to reach out to Jones on Facebook. After a quick conversation online, Moton and Jones met in person and hit it off.

Moton would move to the Washington, D.C., bureau of ABC News later that year. Jones, who ran operations for companies in the healthcare industry, was offered the job of the CEO of Hospice of Charles County in Maryland in 2016. That’s how they went from a long-distance relationship to moving in together.
They met each other’s families, who adored them. Which proved to be great help for Moton when he proposed to Jones with a little help from the Jones’ family in 2018.
Brandon Jones is currently a consultant with the Renaye James Healthcare Advisers and the director of health center operations and HR training at the National Association of Community Health Centers.
