Kevin Vesey is a reporter for News 12 Long Island. A native of St. James, Vesey was inspired to become a News 12 reporter in the 1990s, after watching the legendary Ken Grimball do a piece about his elementary school’s science fair. When he’s not out getting the latest story, Vesey enjoys playing tennis, cooking, skiing and running. An avid traveler, he’s visited more than 20 different countries (and counting), and speaks Portuguese, French and Spanish. Vesey lives with his wife in Long Beach, where they spend much of their time relaxing on the sand, biking the boardwalk, eating out in the west end, and grabbing ice cream at Beach Local Cafe.
