Kevin Newman steps down as host of W5; will run podcast

CTV News announced today that Kevin Newman will be stepping down as Host and Correspondent of W5 when the award-winning investigative series returns to CTV for an unprecedented 54th season on Sept. 21.

“I feel genuinely fortunate to have done some of the most meaningful work of my career at W5,” said Newman. “After four decades of reporting, it’s time to make room for the next generation, and I am grateful to be contributing to CTV News in new ways.”

Newman’s decision to take a step back from helming W5 allows him time to focus on other projects, including a new podcast series for CTV News and iHeartRadio. With complete details to be announced soon, this new podcast project will be released in the lead-up to and throughout the Canadian federal election and will focus on issues related to technology and democracy.
