  • Text size: + -

Kevin is an original member of the NY1 News family, having come aboard in the summer of 1992. Hired as a sports producer, reporter and fill-in anchor, Kevin now reports in the field three days a week and anchors "Sports on 1: The Last Word" every Friday and Saturday night.

Born and raised in Bayonne, NJ, Kevin earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY.

Upon graduating in 1989, he was hired as a sports reporter and anchor at Newscenter 6 in Wappingers Falls, NY, where he covered his alma mater, reported on Army football, and covered plenty of high school sports as well.

Kevin also did play-by-play for Army hockey and was a fill-in play-by-play announcer for Marist basketball on the Colony Sports Network.

The launch of NY1 coincided with a very exciting decade in New York sports, which found Kevin and the rest of the sports department covering everything from the Knicks' and Rangers' magical runs in 1994 to the Yankees' four World Series titles and the Giants' trip to the Super Bowl. Some of Kevin's most memorable assignments included covering the Rangers' Stanley Cup Championship, the Subway Series, and St. John's run to the Elite Eight in 1999.

Kevin also fronted NY1's coverage of the Yankees' season-opening trip to Tokyo in 2004.

Kevin and his wife Stacy have been married since 1994 and have two children, Kaitlin and Trevor. They reside in New Jersey.
