Keith Watson was born in New Jersey, but spent most of his life in Charlottesville, with UVA in his backyard, which only intensified his passion for sports.
His interest in journalism began before he was even born. Keith’s grandfather is Arthur Watson, a former president of NBC Sports. Keith hardly ever misses a Jets, Cavaliers or Devils game, but he always knew he wanted to go beyond the television and get closer to the action.
He followed this passion by attending High Point University where he studied journalism. Although he originally thought he would get a job as a sports reporter, he quickly found that producing was a great way to get behind the scenes and closer to both the news and sports stories he values most.
Outside the newsroom, you could find Keith eating pizza and working on his mission to taste every craft beer in Washington County.
