New London Bureau Chief, Kevin Hogan knows Connecticut.

The TV bug bit Kevin in 1959 during a visit to the live studio of "Beat the Clock" in New York. That's when TV game show host Bud Collyer interviewed Kevin in the audience about his missing front teeth. It was the first story he told on TV!
Kevin's broadcast career began at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury on the campus' radio station, WXCI-FM. Additionally, Kevin also interned at WNEW-TV in New York City and "The Ten O'Clock News with Bill Jorgensen.
In 1979, Kevin anchored mornings in New Haven on WELI-AM with veteran broadcaster Ron Rohmer. A year later, he became news director at WAVZ and WKCI (KC101) during which time he won several broadcast awards.
In 1997, Channel 3 chose Kevin to take on the role of special correspondent to cover Pope John Paul II's historic trip to Cuba. When he returned, Kevin became a permanent part of the Eyewitness News team.
Kevin says his career gives him an opportunity everyday to meet people and report on stories that help communities.
Outside of work, Kevin enjoys family time along with his painstakingly restored 1959 MGA Roadster. If you see him at a show or a car cruise say hey!
