Keith came to Buffalo after 5 years at KUTV-TV, the NBC station in Salt Lake City, Utah where he anchored the weekend newscasts and reported on the weekdays.

Before that Keith worked as a reporter at CKVR-TV Channel 3 in Barrie, Ontario. Before moving over to television news, Keith worked in radio for 11 years, anchoring and reporting at stations in Windsor/Detroit, Ottawa, and Toronto. For his last 5 years in radio, he was news director of the famous CKLW radio station in the Windsor/Detroit market.

Simpson double murder story in Los Angeles. He’s profiled such personalities as Peter Jennings, Ted Koppel, Tony Bennett and Regis Philbin. Besides covering most of the national political conventions since 1988, Keith even traveled with the Buffalo Bills during the glory years and their four consecutive super bowls. After the Crash of Flight 3407, Keith traveled with the victim's families to Washington, DC as they pushed for a change in legislation for stricter rules for airlines.
