Good luck trying to find a town in Colorado Kevin Torres hasn’t visited! Since 2009, the 9x Emmy Award winning journalist has trekked to every corner of the state and nearly every community in between.
Kevin is well known throughout the state for his ‘Unique 2 Colorado’ series, where he highlights interesting people, places and things.
Having grown up on a farm in Upstate New York, rural towns have a special place in Kevin’s heart. That’s why a good chunk of his stories focus on communities outside the metro area.
In July of 2016, Kevin joined the team at Colorado’s Own Channel 2 News full-time. He transitioned over from KWGN’s sister-station, FOX31 KDVR, where he first started in 2015.
Kevin’s segment ‘Unique 2 Colorado’ airs Monday-Friday on Channel 2 News at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. You can also catch Kevin’s stories occasionally on our sister-station FOX31.
Before joining the Emmy-Award winning news teams at Channel 2 and FOX31, Kevin spent five and a half years reporting for the NBC affiliate in Denver.
Kevin has covered some of Colorado’s biggest stories, including: the Aurora Theater shooting, the Black Forest Fire, the Waldo Canyon fire and the historic floods of 2013 (to name a few). Kevin also traveled to Boston to cover the Boston bombings, as well as Texas for the West, Texas explosion in 2013.
Kevin has won more than 90 awards for his reporting and his storytelling. He’s the recipient of 9 Emmy Awards, including two Emmys for ‘Best Writer’, ‘Best Live Reporter’ and ‘Best Narrator’.
In 2016, Kevin won 2 additional Emmy Awards for his stories about unique people living in Colorado’s small towns. Kevin has also been nominated for an additional 27 Emmy Awards and has won a prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award for his reporting.
In 2014, Kevin was also named a finalist for the National Press Photographers Association’s ‘Reporter of the Year’ Award; a national recognition.
When he’s not working, you can find Kevin traveling throughout the beautiful state of Colorado. He loves to camp, hike, explore, sleep and watch Netflix. Kevin also loves to travel beyond state lines. You can follow his adventures on Facebook and Instagram.
Originally from Upstate New York, Kevin travels back home quite often to spend time with his two awesome nephews: Merv and Mason.
Prior to working in Denver, Kevin was a Reporter at WSYR-TV in Syracuse, NY and a Reporter/Weekend Anchor at WWNY-TV in Watertown, NY. Kevin studied Broadcasting & Mass Communications at Oswego State University.
