Our friend, former Breakfast Television producer Kevin Forget (now with the Ontario Ministry of Tourism in Barrie), who also came down from Sutton, had a very serious run-in with a deer on that exact stretch of road a year ago. His car was totaled and I can't say for sure that it had something to do with his decision to change jobs and hours, but I wouldn't be surprised.

Kevin Forget, Breakfast Television's Segment Producer, is living and breathing his job dream! He is one of a couple of people who book the guests on the show-- going through segment pitches, hunting people down "that we see in the newspapers" and finally, work a segment out, as in what the hosts are going to talk about that day. Television is exactly what we would expect it to be: exciting, exhilarating and a lot of hard work. During those long 4am drives to work from Keswick, Kevin smiles knowing he is driving towards his childhood dream.
Just like he does every morning, our Breakfast Television superstar woke-up extra early starting in grade 7 to watch his favourite morning show, BT. He liked the idea of working on a television show, "I thought it would be a cool job."
To prepare, Kevin took public-speaking courses in high school and learned organizational skills while in the student council. He then studied Television Broadcasting at Fanshawe College and Broadcast Journalism at Loyalist College, to gain hands-on experience. Both colleges require students to complete an internship, Kevin interned at Columbia Tri-Star Pictures for 6 weeks and ironically, landed his second at Breakfast Television.
It was Kevin's persistence and opportunities that got him such incredible internships. Spaces are limited, "so get on the phone fast and make that call" he says. Once his internship at BT ended, Kevin continued to volunteer, sleeping on friend's couches so he could make it to BT for 5am, until a position opened-up. "Do anything, any job you can to get your foot in the door, once you get your foot in the door you can always prove that you can do more than just bring coffee and you make contacts. Which is definitely a bonus!
Paying his freshman dues as a Unit Assistant, Kevin's duties included coffee runs, office mailman and administrative work until he was hired two years later as a Segment Producer. I asked Kevin what made this job his dream job? His answer: "Everyday is a different day.

Last Wednesday at the highly ungodly hour of 5:30 in the morning, I got a call from Kevin Forget, producer of CityTV's Breakfast Television (BT).Since I was scheduled to be on the show that morning, I feared he was calling at the last minute possible to cancel.
Luckily, that wasn't the case.He just wanted me to see if I could bring in a copy of an earlier piece I had had aired on the show a few years prior.
