Needs a new ignition cylinder. You can buy one at any autoparts store. Bring the new cylinder to a locksmith along with your key so they can assemble the tumblers into the correct positions. Then install yourself or pay someone to.

So the key is out of the ignition correct? If so, grab a fine brush and try to clean the ignition slot out. You can also use an air compressor. Sometime's dirt can cause issues with cylinders.
