That innate ability has taken the host of ‘Connect with Mark Kelley’, a nightly newsmagazine show on CBC News Channel, all over the world. It has given him a birds’ eye view of some of the most significant stories of a generation – the Sept 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the 1998 Ice Storm in Quebec, the 2006 tsunami in Indonesia, among others. All remarkable moments in history that Kelley has reported on.
Five nights a week, the award-winning broadcast journalist deftly moves from one newsmaker to another and one media platform to the next as part of his face-paced show that connects viewers to some of the stories behind the headlines using new technologies and social media. A connection from a unique perspective.
Hand-in-hand with making those important connections, comes a healthy dose of compassion, another Kelley trademark. The combination yields candid interviews, powerful storytelling and high quality journalism.
Away from the spotlight, Kelley retreats to a bustling home life. He and his wife are the proud parents of 4 boys – 12, 10 and 8 year-old twins.
We interviewed Mark Kelley during a brief, more quiet moment in his day, to reflect on fatherhood.
As part of our Five Famous Fathers, Five Questions series, Whereparentstalk.com connected with him on SKYPE.
