Innovation. Hard work. Perseverance. For over 20 years, the broadcasting world has been blessed with Kent French’s unique voice. Kent got his start at a local cable station where he “WAS” the sports department. Equipped with a camera and microphone, he built several sports programs centered around high school and college sports and the two local professional teams, the Angels, and the Ducks.
After covering the 2002 World Series and the 2003 Stanley Cup Finals, he took his show to the ESPN Zone in front of a live audience. In September of 2003, Kent was hired by the Ducks and helped create the NHL’s first webcast, Ducks TV and the award-winning corporate communication program, The Element.
Kent became a face and voice of the Ducks during their 2007 Stanley Cup run, co-hosting the parade celebration and documenting the team’s travel around the world with the Stanley Cup.
After spending 7 years working with the Ducks as a producer, host, and reporter, Kent transitioned to Bally Sports (Formerly Fox Sports West) as the host of the Ducks and Angels Pre and Post game shows where he still is today. His connection with athletes is personal, making them feel at ease while giving fans insight into the lives of their favorite players. There’s no one in broadcasting like Kent French. And thank goodness for that.
