About Us

Kevin Green

Kevin Green, CTV Calgary

Hometown: Born in Brandon, Manitoba, but I've been here so long (almost 40 years) that if you cut me I bleed Calgary

Been with CTV Calgary since: 1982

Career Highlights:

  • I was in the locker room with the Flames in Montreal when they won the cup and I drank champagne from it with the team
  • Perhaps equally important, I was in the locker room with them both times they beat the Oilers on the way to the Stanley Cup finals
  • I met Queen Elizabeth during a Royal Tour through Calgary
  • Tragic as it was, the Edmonton tornado was a very memorable moment in my career. I was one of the first journalists in the Evergreen Trailer Park after it hit
  • Darrel Janz and I reported from Bosnia and Croatia during the civil war there
  • Covering the solar car race from Austin, Texas to Calgary, during which I broke new ground in using the Internet to facilitate broadcasting on that shoot
  • Recently traveled to Sudan to document the journey of one of the Lost Boys of Sudan as he returned home to meet the family he left behind when he fled the war in Sudan

Volunteer Connections in Calgary: You don't SEE me volunteering at a lot of stuff but in the background I raise money for different causes. You will find a lot of my donated photography at charity fundraising events.


  • Studied philosophy at the U of C
  • Broadcasting Program, Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT)

Favourite Place in Calgary: Edworthy Park

Favourite TV Show: Besides CTV News?

Why I am a broadcaster: It is really interesting to meet so many people from so many different walks of life, from oil company CEO's to homeless people; to listen to their stories and reflect them back to the viewers. It forces you to keep an open mind and forces you to throw away your stereotypes.

Southern Albertans look to CTV Calgary for excellence in news and entertainment programming and that legacy of news innovation and community involvement continues today as we celebrate over 50 years in broadcasting.

CTV Calgary (CFCN) went on the air for the first time on the evening of September 9, 1960 and was the first independent television station in Canada.

The first broadcast was a 30-minute news program, followed by two movies, bringing then owner H. Gordon Love’s life-long dream to reality.

CFCN became a member of the Canadian Television Network (CTV) on October 1961 and one of the station’s longest running shows, The Buck Shot Show, started in 1967.

As an owned and operated affiliate of the CTV Network, CTV Calgary, created a number of firsts in Canadian television.

  • First to produce a Canadian Football League game from the prairies for CTV
  • Instituting instant replay in Western Canada
  • Brought Crime Stoppers to Calgary
  • Initiated Child Find on television

Canada’s largest telecommunications company, Bell Canada Enterprises, has owned CTV Calgary since 2000.

CTV Calgary’s trusted team of journalists and top-notch news producers, editors and photographers are dedicated to providing the best in local news programming to southern Alberta on-the-air, in the community and online.
