Kevin O'Connor      

Host of "This Old House" on PBS

Kevin O’Connor is the host of the Emmy Award-winning series, This Old House and Ask This Old House. He has appeared on the two shows since 2003 and serves on the editorial board of This Old House magazine. O’Connor is also the host of This New House airing on the DIY Network and host of Hidden History in Your House airing on the History Channel’s H2 network.

O’Connor, along with his four brothers and two sisters, grew up on various job sites led by his father, a civil engineer. Years later he remains an avid home enthusiast. When O’Connor, a lifelong fan of "This Old House", and his wife, Kathleen, were renovating their 1892 Queen Anne Victorian they sent an e-mail seeking advice from the Ask This Old House experts. To their surprise and delight, the house call served as O’Connor’s first screen test to serve as the new host (the third host in the history of the pioneer home improvement series).

O’Connor received a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from the College of the Holy Cross and a Master’s of Business Administration degree from Boston University. Prior to joining This Old House O’Connor worked for Bank of America as a Senior Vice President in the Commercial Real Estate Group and before that in the Sports Finance Group at Fleet Bank. Originally from New Jersey, O’Connor lives with his wife and three children north of Boston.
