Fearless’ Fred Kennedy is the afternoon drive host for Toronto’s Rock Station, Q107. A staple on rock radio airwaves and television sets in Toronto for more than a decade, Fred began hosting on Q107 in 2018, making the switch from his longtime role as a host on Q’s sister station 102.1 the Edge. Born and raised in Nova Scotia in a military household, Fred spent his pre-teen years in Belgium and has lived and worked in a number of different cities across Canada. Working for stations such as Power 97 in Winnipeg and 100.3 The Bear in Edmonton before arriving in Toronto, Fred’s passion for radio saw him awarded with the Steve Young Broadcaster of the Year Award in 2009.
Outside of radio, Fred enjoys writing and collecting comics, complaining about social media, and staying active. His passion for all things nerdy saw him feature as the long-time host of Teletoon’s beloved Teletoon at Night content block, cover San Diego Comic-Con and Fan Expo Toronto countless times, as well as host his own “geek” podcast Issue Zero.
In the community, Fred is a regular supporter of local businesses and organizes his own charity initiative, ‘Fearless Fred’s 24 Hour Walk for Wishes’, which raises money for the Children’s Wish Foundation of Ontario.
