Innovation. Hard work. Perseverance. For 20 years, the broadcasting world has been blessed with Kent French’s unique voice. Kent started in an apartment closet where he built the sports department for a local cable station. From this closet studio, Kent covered high school games, the Angels, and the Ducks.
After announcing the 2002 World Series and the 2003 Stanley Cup Finals at ESPN Zone in front of a live audience, Kent moved on to create the NHL’s first webcast, Ducks TV and the award-winning corporate communication program, The Element.
Kent became the 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 Stanley Cup. He’ll tell you all about how it was one of the greatest experiences of his life if you let him, especially if he’s had a few vodkas.
After spending 16 years working with the Ducks as a producer, host, and reporter, Kent is pretty much one of the guys. 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.
