Having joined the Eyewitness News team in 1987, Keith holds the record as the longest-running TV Anchorman in Buffalo. His career in broadcasting began at KUTV-TV, the NBC station in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he spent five years before making his way to Buffalo.
Before his television career, Keith honed his reporting skills as an Anchor/Reporter at CTV in Toronto and CKVR-TV in Barrie, Ontario. Prior to transitioning to television, Keith dedicated 11 years to radio, anchoring and reporting at stations in Windsor/Detroit, Ottawa, and Toronto.
He also served as the news director for the renowned CKLW radio station in the Windsor/Detroit market.
In addition to anchoring, Keith’s impressive reporting skills have earned him numerous awards during his 30-year tenure in Buffalo. He fearlessly covered a range of stories, from spending a week at Marine boot camp in South Carolina to profiling Western New York seamen aboard a navy frigate in the Atlantic.
He even traveled to the Middle East with local air force reservists to report on the Persian Gulf War in 1990. Keith’s dedication to covering crucial events led him to fly with the U.S. Air Force Reserves Team, the Niagara Falls 914th, to report on Hurricane Andrew in Florida.
Notably, he was the primary live reporter for ABC News during the first two weeks of the O.J. Simpson double murder story in Los Angeles. He’s conducted interviews with prominent figures like Peter Jennings, Ted Koppel, Tony Bennett, and Regis Philbin.
His extensive coverage includes most of the national political conventions since 1988, as well as accompanying the Buffalo Bills during their illustrious four consecutive Super Bowl appearances. Keith also stood alongside the victim’s families after the Crash of Flight 3407, traveling with them to Washington, DC, as they advocated for stricter airline regulations.
