Kevin Karius has all of the day’s sports action in Edmonton’s most complete sports report, weeknights at 6.00 on the News Hour and at 11.00 during News Hour Final.
Kevin joined ITV (now Global Edmonton) back in 1997. His broadcasting career started eight years earlier in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. In between, he has worked at television stations in Prince Albert, Lethbridge, Saskatoon and Calgary.
Since 2003, Kevin has also worked for the Oilers Radio Network, providing colour commentary for dozens of Edmonton Oilers games. He also joined the Oilers Pay Per View television broadcast team during the 2005-2006 season, serving as host, colour commentator, and play-by-play announcer.
In 2004 and again in 2008, Kevin participated in the World’s Longest Hockey Game tournament. The 10-day, 240-hour hockey marathon has raised close to $1,000,000 for Edmonton’s Cross Cancer Institute.
The energetic and colourful sportscaster is the honourary chair for the Easter Seals of Northern Alberta. Every August, he hits the links to host the “Kevin Karius Celebrity Golf Classic.” Proceeds from the annual golf tournament go to the Easter Seals. In 2008, $90,000 was raised.
Kevin is from Crooked Lake, Saskatchewan. He enjoys golf, rec hockey, fishing, cycling, running and getting back to the lake as often as possible to water ski and visit family and friends.
