ANNOUNCEMENT: KEVIN NEWMAN, HOST & MANAGING EDITOR OF CTV’S W5, TO CO-HOST 7th ANNUAL FIGHT TO END CANCER GALA!


The Fight To End Cancer (FTEC) team is thrilled to announce that we will be welcoming to our team, Kevin Newman, the Host & Managing Editor of W5.  Kevin will co-host the 2018 FTEC Gala with Global News’ Angie Seth, in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

Kevin Newman is Host & Managing Editor of W5, CTV’s weekly Investigative and Documentary program, now in its 52nd season. Newman was the founding anchor of Global National, Co-Host of Good Morning America, and a news correspondent for the ABC, CBC and CTV Networks, previous to joining CTV in 2002.  He has earned multiple Emmy, Gemini and Peabody Awards, in his 35 year career and interviewed multiple news makers and celebrities.  He is also the co-author, with his son Alex, of the national bestselling memoir: All Out.

We couldn’t be more thrilled to have him and Angie on board and can’t wait to see them on the red carpet, on Saturday, June 2nd, at Toronto’s historic Old Mill.

“It was an easy ‘yes’ when I was graciously asked to be your co-MC for this year’s Fight to End Cancer.  It will be an honour to share the ring with committed and tough athletes, and help a rowdy crowd enjoy one of Toronto most unique and energetic events.  I’ve stood at the bedside of too many family members as cancer ravaged their bodies and minds.  It is an ugly, determined and cruel foe.  Anything I can do to help shrink its insidious power is, frankly, my small way of getting even. “

~ Kevin Newman |  Host & Managing Editor of CTV’s W5


W5Kevin Newman’s Biography | Host & Managing Editor of CTV’s W5

One of Canada’s most authoritative voices in news, Kevin Newman is a household name.  He is well-known to viewers as a news anchor, in both Canada and the U.S., for more than 30 years.  He has been a correspondent and co-host on the award-winning investigative series W5, since September 2012, as well as a fill-in anchor for CTV NATIONAL NEWS.  Newman formerly anchored the innovative daily news program KEVIN NEWMAN LIVE and hosted the long-running political broadcast program QUESTION PERIOD.

Newman’s career has taken him to every major hotspot around the globe and through every community, territory, and province in Canada.  He has covered some of the most significant events in recent history, from 9/11 and the Asian Tsunami, to Mandela’s release and Chris Hadfield singing in orbit.  He has been embedded with Canadian troops in Afghanistan, and led award-winning newscasts north and south of the border.  His work has garnered the industry’s highest honours, including Emmy® Awards, Gemini Awards, and a Peabody Award.

Newman has been instrumental in curating and building the CTV NEWS digital brand, while offering insight into the digital media strategy and future of other Bell Media properties.  He is a devoted social media enthusiast, whose departure from traditional media in 2010 was borne of a desire to explore the emerging digital content field.

Prior to his role with CTV News, Newman returned to Canada from the US in 2001 to join Global Television, leading the creative, staffing, and editorial design of the national news, which he anchored for 10 years.

Newman’s return to the Canadian broadcaster followed his seven years as an anchor and correspondent at ABC News in New York. During that time, Newman hosted and reported for Nightline, World News Tonight, and Good Morning America, reporting for Nightline with Ted Koppel, and substitute anchoring and reporting for World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.

Newman anchored CBC Television’s Midday, after reporting for The National from Parliament Hill, Alberta and the North, from 1992 to 1994.  He was CTV’s Atlantic Bureau Chief and Parliamentary Reporter, from 1986 to 1988.  His first job as a reporter was with Global TV’s Sportsline in 1981.

Kevin Newman was born in Toronto, and started his broadcasting career by co-founding CHRW radio at Western University in London, Ontario. He produced the first Western Mustangs football radio broadcasts and was awarded an Honourary Doctorate of Law from his alma mater in June 2011.
