John Kessler

John is an Emmy-award winning broadcast journalist and an inductee into the Silver Circle of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

From his beginning as a radio disc jockey in Watkins Glen and Elmira, John's career has taken him to the far reaches of the globe.

His first Emmy came for his reporting from Baghdad during the Iraq war. 

He was live on the air, beside the Brandenburg Gate, as the Berlin Wall crumbled. 

John covered the devastation of both the San Francisco and Northridge earthquakes in California.

He has accompanied emergency supplies as they were delivered to people whose homes and livelihoods were lost during Hurricane Iniki in Kauai.

And he was one of the first to helicopter over and document the devastation of the deadly Oakland Hills Fire, which destroyed more than 2,800 homes.

John now lives on Seneca Lake with his dog, Harley.
