I was born just down the road in Kingston, and have spent 30 years in the crazy business of radio, starting out at CJTN in 1985. I have worked in Kingston, Simcoe, Tillsonburg, and Brantford before coming back home to Belleville.
I have been a die hard Godzilla fan for more years than I can mention, but am very proud of that.
I actually had to travel to China to marry my beautiful wife in 2006, and in 2010 welcomed our darling daughter, Gwendolyn.
When not on the air, I am usually seen working in the production department at Quinte Broadcasting.
When growing up in Napanee, I played drums for different bands from the time I was 13. I don’t play anymore, although I do take a moment once a year to clean the dust off the kit.
My musical tastes are simple, the Beatles, the Stones, and especially Pink Floyd, my favorite actor is Jimmy Stewart,and my favorite movie that I can watch over and over again is the classic…JAWS.
I am a fan of The Lone Ranger, monster movies, and Japanese scifi. And that’s about all there is to know about me.
Hear Greg weekends from 12pm to 6pm
To say that Kevin is a life-long weather enthusiast is an understatement. He’s always been interested in the weather. His first weather job was in high school providing the daily weather report on the morning announcements. The segment was called “Weather by Williams.” His first professional job was with a private meteorological consulting firm in New York City in 1976. Kevin earned a Bachelor of Science degree in meteorology from Cornell University in 1981.
He formed his business now called WEATHER-TRACK in 1980 in Ithaca and moved the business to Rochester in 1983. Weather-Track now serves clients in North America and Europe. Clients include radio stations, Fortune 500 companies, utilities, municipalities, ski resorts, education centers, newspapers, producers, agriculture interests, marine interests, aviators, attorneys, and more. Kevin’s television career began on Ithaca’s WICB TV in 1980. Kevin is a full member of the American Meteorological society and holder of its seals of approval for radio and television. Kevin is also the the author of three weather books, his latest is entitled, “Keep Looking Up.” In addition to all that, Kevin is very active in local community groups including the Humane Society, the United Way, and various school programs.
