PAT KENNY IS a national institution. An august broadcasting presence, trusted to handle the weightiest of issues with pomp and gravitas.

He is there when the nation goes through difficult times, his refined tones guiding us through the most solemn of topics.


Literally zooming around the place without a care in the world, happy as a little kid. Look at the little blue lights!

Easy now Pat!

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? #pknt
