Previously, he was an op-ed columnist for The Boston Globe. Keller spent four years as a political reporter for The Boston Phoenix and was a part-time radio talk-show host on WBZ Radio. Before that, he held positions with the TAB Newspapers, People Magazine (Boston Bureau) and a number of radio stations across the region.

Keller was named “Best TV Political Analyst” for the second time in Boston Magazine’s 29th annual “Best of Boston” issue and previously won the award in 1999. Keller received a New England Emmy Award for Best Reporting in May 2004. He won his first Emmy from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences/New England regional chapter for “Best Commentary” in 1998.

Born in Washington, DC in 1956, Jon was raised in Cambridge and graduated from Commonwealth High School in 1973. Keller received his bachelor’s degree from Brandeis University in 1977 where he earned Cum Laude honors.
