Carmel Kilkenny grew up in Toronto and worked in the “star maker machinery behind the popular song” as Joni Mitchell put it best. A variety of positions in the management companies of Canadian band SAGA and Long John Baldry, were both a joy and an education.
A year living in Paris, France provided the time and opportunity to study the language, and experience the culture. It also provided a base to visit other European destinations.
Now Carmel makes her home in Montreal, Quebec. Following a degree in Communication Studies and Journalism, Carmel anchored Quebec’s late-night TV newscast, worked in radio, locally and on RCI’s short-waves, and spent some time sharing the daily forecast on a network of radio stations across Canada as a weather specialist.
These days, as a freelance writer-broadcaster, she is lending her voice and writing skills to a number of projects and continuing to share great Canadian stories on Radio Canada International’s website.
