Meteorologist | CBC News Nova Scotia | CBC News New Brunswick
Kalin Mitchell is meteorologist on CBC Television's CBC News Nova Scotia, CBC News New Brunswick and CBC News Maritimes at 11. He can also be heard on various afternoon CBC Radio shows giving up-to-the-minute weather forecasts.
Based in Halifax, Kalin joined the CBC Maritimes team in November 2011 as CBC Radio One's morning meteorologist. In December 2012, Kalin switched roles with CBC meteorologist Peter Coade, from radio to television. The duo provides the most comprehensive weather coverage in the region.
Born and raised in British Columbia, Kalin was always fascinated by science and recalls being a "super weather geek" growing up in Nanaimo.
This is a return to the Maritimes for Kalin. In 2010, he successfully completed Environment Canada's Meteorological Occupational Intern Program - an intensive eight-month training course in operational meteorology at the Environment Canada office in Dartmouth, N.S., home of the Canadian Hurricane Centre.
Kalin holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Atmospheric Science from the University of British Columbia. He is an endorsed weathercaster and member of the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society and has attained the level of MT-2 while at Environment Canada.
Kalin is no stranger to the airwaves. He has worked on CBC News Network in Toronto between 2007 and 2010 and was a forecaster at The Weather Network in 2006.
Away from the CBC Maritimes Weather Centre, Kalin is a huge sports fanatic and loves hockey. His cousin Willie Mitchell plays in the National Hockey League with the Los Angeles Kings for the past two years and played four years with the Vancouver Canucks.
Kalin is also a world traveller, a dog lover and also enjoys Kendo, Japanese fencing. He resides in Dartmouth, N.S., with his wife Jill, and their Border Collie, Echo.
