PJ O'Keefe is the Director of Digital Media at WRTV, theINDYchannel.com and the RTV6 apps and social media pages.
PJ was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, where his love of community, sports and the outdoors was fostered. He is excited to be in Indianapolis now with all of the new developments in the city, and the pockets of activity that are popping up from Speedway to Carmel and back down to Irvington. It seems like there are an endless amount of interesting things to explore.
He most recently came from WCPO in Cincinnati, where over five years he built a successful digital product that ultimately led to the first digital subscription-base by a broadcast television station in the country. PJ won a Regional Edward R. Murrow award for best website two years in a row and a National Murrow for best investigation for his work on exposing the problems with Cincinnati's 911 center.
Before that, PJ got his start with The Boston Herald as a high school sports writer after graduating from Xavier University in Cincinnati (sorry Butler fans!).
PJ's focus is on content that connects with the residents of central Indiana on the ground level. We're not talking to you, we're talking with you. We're not reporting at you, but rather for you.
PJ is married with 1 newborn, and has a dog who acts like a child. They live in Indianapolis.
