Royce Jones joined WTRF in August of 2018.
Royce comes from New Kensington, PA (a small town about 30 minutes north of the City of Pittsburgh). He attends Point Park University where he is currently earning his degree in Broadcast Reporting while balancing his part-time role at 7News as an Anchor/Reporter.
Royce is a proud Emma Bowen Foundation Alumni. The Emma Bowen Foundation is a prestigious organization for students of color, offering multi-year internships with some of the nation’s leading media companies. Before joining 7News, Royce spent two-years interning with KDKA (CBS Pittsburgh) where he had the opportunity to shadow some of journalism’s finest and also cover some high-profile stories on his own, including the Antwon Rose protests.
In his spare time, Royce is usually drinking coffee, shopping online or chatting on the phone with his friends and family (this man will talk your ear off). He also enjoys fitness, cooking, and music (preferably hip-hop or R&B).
Royce loves working for the people of the Ohio Valley and is always sniffing around for stories.You can always send him your story ideas via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or DM him on Twitter @roycewtrf.
Note: Royce is a HUGE dog lover and he wants the Ohio Valley to know that if he sees you out and about with your fluffy friend, he will very likely ask to pet, hold, and take selfies with them.
