Pat Kiernan is the morning anchor on NY1 in New York.
Kiernan’s career in broadcast journalism began while he was attending the University of Alberta's Faculty of Business in Edmonton, Canada. Upon the completion of his bachelor of commerce degree, he accepted a full-time job as a general assignment reporter for CFRN television in Canada's fourth-largest TV market.
While at the CTV network-affiliated station, he anchored a weekly business news magazine program and at various times worked as the station's assistant news director, assignment editor, producer and news anchor.
Prior to joining Time Warner and NY1, he was the senior producer of the prime-time newscast ITV News at Ten on CITV, one of Canada's satellite superstations, where his duties included an on-air role as host of "Your Money," a popular segment he created.
Kiernan and his wife Dawn moved to New York in March of 1996. He joined the Time Warner family as the anchor and producer of the Fortune Business Report, and was named NY1's morning anchor in 1997.
Kiernan has traced his Irish heritage back as far as the Famine. He believes his ancestors came from Monaghan and Cork.
