Only Global Edmonton’s Kevin O’Connell brings his forecasts and very quick wit to the Saturday and Sunday Morning News, Edmonton’s only live, local, weekend morning newscast as well as the weather on the weekend News Hour Saturday and Sunday.
Kevin started in television in Red Deer in 1988. In 1993, he moved to the City of Champions to co-host ITV First News (now the Morning News on Global Edmonton). Kevin loves being a weather broadcaster, because he doesn’t have to take everything so seriously.
Kevin is involved in the community as a volunteer for the Cancer Foundation, Crime Stoppers, the Edmonton Humane Society and other charitable organizations.
When Kevin is not telling us the weather, he is spending time with his two young children, and their two basset hounds. As a family, they enjoy camping, biking and the outdoors.
WATCH: Kevin answers a few questions for Global Edmonton viewers, including: what do you do on your days off, and what makes you laugh?
