Kevin Mannix has been a part of the NEWS CENTER weatherteam since 1989. He is the weather forecaster for NEWS CENTER's noon show, televised statewide on WCSH 6, Portland and WLBZ 2, Bangor. Kevin was formally the forecaster on the Morning Report, but moved to the noon show to have more time to focus on Kevin's Story, a series that highlights the shame associated with mental health issues.
Kevin attended of Northeast Broadcast School in Boston. Prior to his start at NEWS CENTER, Kevin was the weather forecaster at WAGM in Presque Isle. He also worked in Phoenix, Arizona, and Worcester, Massachusetts. Kevin's favorite aspect of his job here is telling viewers how he arrived at the day's forecast. Kevin says, "I say when I'm sure, and I say when I'm not sure. Viewers I meet say they like that honesty." When asked how he got into television, he replies, "My dad was a broadcaster. I guess it's in the genes!"
Kevin enjoys jogging, movies, and travel. He's also a big Red Sox and Patriots fan! He is very proud of his involvement with Coats for Kids and the Waban Telethon each spring in Sanford, Maine. Kevin has two sons.
