Kevin Newman

Anchor, Kevin Newman Live

Born: Toronto, ON

Socially speaking: Humans evolved because we are social. I am part of the last generation that will remember a time when we weren’t networked as a species. From here on out we begin evolving as one.

Compelling stuff: Some of the most compelling stories I have covered are the ones that are so extra-ordinary you can barely believe them yourself: 9/11, the Asian Tsunami, Mandela’s release, Chris Hadfield singing in orbit are just a few.

Naturally Curious: I always wanted a career that allowed me to witness my time here, and to see as much of it with my own eyes as possible.

Shiny Hardware: Throughout my career, I’ve been awarded two Emmy’s, two Gemini’s, and a Peabody.
