John McDevitt has been a reporter and editor at KYW Newsradio 1060 since April of 1999, but he’s been in the all-news family for more than a decade.
McDevitt grew up in Drexel Hill (Delaware County), graduating from Monsignor Bonner High School, and in 1991 from Temple University, where he got a BA degree in radio, television, and film.
Following an early dream, McDevitt moved to Southern California to pursue acting. While in Hollywood, he began working at KYW’s sister station in Los Angeles (KFWB) as an editorial assistant, helping anchors and editors create news reports.
He worked his way up at KFWB, eventually getting his big break as a news reporter to cover a large outbreak of wildfires — because most of the rest of the staff was at an office party at the time.
After several years, McDevitt returned to the Philadelphia area and KYW Newsradio, where he works as an editor and reporter.
One of John’s personal passions is traveling. In recent years he’s been to Ireland, Australia, and eastern Europe.
