Jon is widely regarded as the top political analyst in New England.

The politicians respect him too because he has a reputation for being non-partisan, accurate, and dedicated to serving viewers. Although ‘Keller at Large’ primarily tackles politics, Keller also offers social and cultural commentary on news of the day and pop culture.
