Veteran Boston political commentator Jon Keller is heard every weekday morning at 7:56 on “The WBZ Morning News.”
His “Keller At Large” commentaries cover everything from politics to pop culture to sports in a witty, outspoken style that is recognizably Bostonian.

Keller has been part of the WBZ family since 1986, as a talk-show host and news analyst, and is familiar to both television watchers and magazine readers from his work as political analyst for WBZ-TV and as political columnist for Boston Magazine and author of the weekly “Spin-O-Meter” in the Boston Herald.  His writing on Massachusetts politics has appeared in the Boston Globe, the Boston Herald, the Boston Phoenix, the Wall Street Journal, and the New Republic magazine.  Awards include two New England Emmys for reporting and editorial commentary and a New England Press Association award for best investigative reporting for a series of exposes of patronage and waste in Massachusetts State government.

The father of two boys, enjoys music, tennis, and bodysurfing the beaches of New England with friends and family.
