Bob McKeown


Bob McKeown has a record no other Canadian journalist can claim: 3 Gemini Awards for his work with Canada’s foremost investigative television program, the CBC’s ‘the fifth estate’; 2 Emmy awards from his years with CBS and NBC in the U.S., and a Grey Cup championship, won when he was an all-star with the Ottawa Rough Riders of the Canadian Football League.

Among his adventures, McKeown has tracked down war criminals and murderers, covered hurricanes and tornados, reported live from the wrecksite of the Titanic and was bitten by a shark – on camera.  A graduate of Yale University, in all he’s reported from over 60 countries and several wars, highlighted by his Emmy-winning coverage of the Persian Gulf War for CBS in which he and his crew reached Kuwait City almost a day before Allied forces did.
