Kevin Stanfield began his journey as a broadcaster while working at a Michael's craft store. A customer said, "You have a nice voice - you should be on the radio!" Kevin slapped his hand off the counter and said, "Then that's what I'll do!" Three and a half years later, he skipped his graduation ceremony from Conestoga College in Kitchener, Ont. to drive across the country for his first job in Smithers, B.C.
After ten months as a network news reporter, Kevin moved back to his hometown of Whitby, Ont. for his next position at the Canadian Traffic Network. Over three years, he evolved from a part-time weekend announcer to the evening helicopter reporter for Q107 and AM640, as well as live traffic reporter for Global News Toronto. On weekends, he had a television show on Rogers Durham and served as a between-the-benches interviewer for Oshawa Generals games, as well as stints doing play-by-play for UOIT sports.
Next, he jumped to Saskatoon to start his career as a weatherman for Global Saskatoon's Morning News over four years. He served his community as chair of the board for Recess Guardians, as well as acting secretary of the board for the Saskatoon SPCA. He interviewed Toronto Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock, astronaut David Saint-Jacques, and actors Billy Boyd, and Robert Englund. He also began the meteorological studies program through Mississippi State University.
Kevin LOVES SPEAKING to students and can't wait to be part of the Sky Watch 'Weather in the Classroom' program with CTV.
Kevin's hometown is Whitby, Ontario. He went to Conestoga College where he graduated with an advanced diploma in television broadcasting. Kevin sings loudly in the car, loves hockey, and off-hours, will surely be found in a board game store
