Early Life[]

Kavanagh was born in Letterkenny, a town in County Donegal in north-western Ireland, and lived there until age 11, when his family moved first to Maine, then New Cambria two years later. He is a 1996 graduate of Holy Cross High School in Southport, and earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from Southport City University in 2000.

Career[]

Broadcasting and presenting[]

After graduating from university, Kavanagh began working for New Cambria's national broadcaster, New Cambria Television. Originally a reporter for 2News@Ten, Kavanagh moved to NCT One, contributing to NCT News at Six, News at Nine and Assembly Report. Kavanagh is credited with establishing New Cambria Public Broadcasting's online presence, becoming their first news correspondent to file stories via blog, webcam and podcast. He is known to television viewers in Ireland for his contributions to various outlets of RTÉ News and Current Affairs. In 2009, NCT announced that Kavanagh would succeed Carolyn Kenney as the host of NCT One's debate show Counterpoint. Kavanagh's first episode aired in January 2010.

Kavanagh has had a multi-year assocation with the annual New Cambria National Song Contest, having presented the show either solo or with a co-presenter in 2009 and 2010. He also presented the follow-up special, "National Song Contest: Looking Back''" every year since 2008. Several of his colleagues in New Cambria's media circles commended Kavanagh for his affable, humourous presentational style.

Personal Life[]

Kavanagh comes from a large family; he has three brothers and three sisters. Most of his siblings moved back to Ireland upon adulthood, though one of his brothers still lives and works in Talbot. In 2008, he accompanied his parents on their move back to Donegal, which he documented thoroughly in his official blog and YouTube channel.

Kavanagh was the first openly gay member of New Cambria Television's on-air staff. Since late 2009, he has been in a relationship with New Cambrian singer and actor Kyle Mason.
