Kevan Kenney - Host/Producer
Kevan Kenney has loved music for as long as he can remember. Growing up in New Jersey, Kevan's earliest memories revolve around being by the radio in search of the latest hit record and glued to his family's television set, awaiting the premiere of his favorite bands' music videos.
Kevan has since forged his profession around introducing new music to the public and bridging the gap between music insiders and fans. What began as a part-time college gig, DJ'ing local events, evolved into a worldwide following for Kevan on Periscope. His daily broadcasts attracted over 2 million hearts and thousands of devoted viewers, paving the way for Kevan's on-air hosting career.
In November 2015, Kevan launched the music discovery series 5 Songs To Add. As host and producer, Kevan now serves up the best in new music each episode as he welcomes some of the biggest up-and-coming names in the world of music from New Zealand to Los Angeles.
Beginning in the Fall of 2016, Kevan took on the role for which he is perhaps best known, as the host of Billboard News in New York City. Soon after, Kevan began anchoring Billboard’s daily Facebook show Billboard Live, welcoming some of the biggest names on the day’s charts as they stop by to perform and hang out.
Today, Kevan finds himself just as passionate about both established hit music and exciting, undiscovered artists as that young kid back in New Jersey huddled around his radio & television, ever-tuning the dial for the next big sound.
