Jonathan Aiken

KYW Traffic

A Bustleton native, Temple grad and KYW Newstudies alum, Jonathan’s had a varied background:  30 years in local and network radio in the US, and London.  After an 11 year stint at CNN both in Washington, DC and Atlanta, where he was a General assignment reporter for CNN, an anchor for CNN International and a Capitol Hill Correspondent for CNN Headline News.  Jonathan then spent ten years at the American Red Cross at its National Headquarters in D.C.  After a stint as Media Relations Director, he created a specialized unit that embedded video crews into Red Cross Disaster Operations, and helped develop a nationwide media training program for the charity.  A geek-like affection for both radio and traffic reporting leads Jonathan back to broadcasting and our 24-hour traffic center each weekend, from Ocean City, NJ., where he currently gets his mail. ​
