Kent Morrison is a news anchor and reporter for Global News Edmonton. His friends and family will tell you that Kent is not really a morning person. But, in the past few years he has learned to like waking up before the sun. Kent anchors Global News Morning 7AM-10AM on Saturdays and Sundays on Global Edmonton.
Kent is proud to be from Moose Jaw and no matter where his house is he will always call that city home.
After graduating high school Kent spent two years in Oakland, California on a baseball scholarship. He transferred to University of Regina in 2007 and graduated with honours from the School of Journalism in 2010.
During his last semester of school Kent produced a film called “Denendeh” that went on to win the 2010 Human Rights DocFest Award for best small budget documentary. In 2012, an article he wrote about the experience making the film won a Gold Medal at the Western Magazine Awards for best article from Saskatchewan.
Since receiving his journalism degree, Kent has worked at CTV and CBC as a radio and TV reporter. In May of 2013, he moved to Global Regina as the sports anchor for the Morning News. During his time at Global Regina, Kent got the chance to meet a number of fantastic people. The highlight was standing on the turf at Mosaic Stadium after the Roughriders won the 2013 Grey Cup.
In 2014, Kent moved to Edmonton to host the city’s only Weekend Morning News with Kevin O’Connell. He loves sharing the news and a few laughs with everyone watching. The weekend team at Global is a small but strong family and Kent is happy to be part of it.
In the summer you’ll find Kent playing or coaching baseball. In the winter he sports one of the highest G.A.A in Adult Safe Hockey.
