Producer of Home & Backyard

Kevin Fonash has been the co-producer of Home & Backyard since July of 2010.

Kevin was born in East Stroudsburg, PA and lived there until attending Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in 2005. While in college, Kevin was very involved throughout the campus, including participating in the campus TV station and National Broadcasting Society, where he attended several regional and national conventions. He was also a founding member of Kappa Sigma Fraternity, of which he helped to create the Kutztown chapter and helped organize and perform numerous hours of service to the community.

During his last semester at Kutztown, Kevin interned at WNEP in the production department. In October of 2009, he was hired as as a part-time production assistant, where he ran camera, audio, and teleprompter for Newswatch 16 shows.

In July of 2010, Kevin was given the opportunity to be a full-time local programming producer, of which Home & Backyard is his main responsibility.

Kevin lives in Scranton with his jack russell terrier/beagle mix, Sadie. In his free time, he likes to travel, go to the gym, and spend time outdoors.
