Kevin Sylvester is not your average sportscaster. He has a B.A. in Philosophy and English (with a minor in Latin) from St. Michael's College at the University of Toronto, and he's currently working on a degree in Fine Arts at the Ontario College of Art and Design.
Kevin Sylvester has been with CBC National Radio Sports for over a decade. During his tenure, he has been a reporter, producer, documentary-maker, writer and host. He's attended several Olympic Games as a CBC producer and host. He's been to Australia, Russia, and even the U.S.!
He's written two radio plays, "Shadrin has Scored for Russia" - a spoof of the 1972 summit series of hockey - and "Rink of the Living Dead." He has also turned "Shadrin" into a best-selling book published by Stoddart in 2001, complete with his own illustrations. His latest book, "Sports Hall of Weird" published by KidsCan Press, has been nominated for a Silver Birch Award by the Ontario Library Association.
Kevin has produced a number of documentaries for the CBC Radio's The Inside Track, including the award-winning "Black Ice", about racism in hockey.
Since February 1999, Sylvester has been host of Morning Sports, a series of reports, commentaries, and editorial items that are heard weekdays between 6 and 9 a.m. on CBC Radio One's local morning programs.
Kevin lives in Toronto with his wife Laura, and daughters Erin and Emily. And he was born just a couple of months before the Leafs won their last Stanley Cup.
