Kiernan began his news career in 1988 at CKRA-FM in Edmonton while a business student at the University of Alberta. He later made a transition from radio to television at Edmonton’s CFRN News. In 1993, he moved to another Edmonton television station, CITV, where he produced the weekworking day primetime newscast. Kiernan moved to New York City three years later to work for Time Warner, where he before long became the morning anchor of NY1. Kiernan is typically on air from 5 AM until 10 AM, weekdays, sometimes being replaced by Kristen Shaughnessy. He was on air on the morning of the September 11th terrorist attacks, and remained on air for nearly 15 hours that day. In addition to his morning anchor position, Kiernan also serves as a correspondent for Business News Network in Canada.
In 2008, Kiernan designed the website Pat’s Papers, a daily curation of his favorite stories from newspapers across the United States. Kiernan has also loved success in films and television series in cameos as himself or as a reporter. These incorporate The Interpreter (2005), Night at the Museum (2006), True North (film) (2006) and The Son of No One (2011). He has been featured in publications including New York (“Morning Star”, February 5, 2001) and the New York Post (“Dream Job: Pat Kiernan”, October 3, 2005) and the Law & Order: Criminal Intent episode “Rispetto” (2011).
