Ken Reid, co-anchor of Sportsnet’s prime time news program, Sportsnet Central, has been adding his unique brand of humour and style to the nightly sports news and updates since joining the network in May 2011.
The proud native of Pictou, N.S. began his broadcasting career at Access Cable in Dartmouth, N.S. where he wore multiple hats, including reporter, anchor, camera operator and play-by-play announcer. Reid then performed stints at various other media companies before joining Sportsnet, including A-Channel in Calgary, the NewRO in Ottawa, CTV Edmonton and more.
A born sports fanatic, Reid’s career highlights include covering the Edmonton Oilers Stanley Cup run in 2006, various Grey Cups, London 2012 Olympic Games and Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans.
In 2014, Reid wrote his first book, a national best seller, “Hockey Card Stories: True Tales from Your Favourite Players”, a compilation of stories from the game’s greatest stars. He also released his second book, “One Night Only” in 2016.
Reid currently resides in Toronto and volunteers his time with the Michael Garron Hospital in Toronto and the Danny Gallivan Cystic Fibrosis Golf tournament in Halifax.
