Peter Koveos was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. He graduated from the British Columbia Institute of Technology, where he won the BEAC Award for Best Newscast, and Runner-up for Best Promo or PSA; the awards honour the best Canadian journalism students each year.
Peter has been working in media for more than a dozen years, both in news and sports, and both behind the scenes and on the air. He says the highlights of his broadcasting career were the three Olympic Games he was able to cover (Beijing 2008, Vancouver 2010, Sochi 2014)
The Canadian arrived at CCTV in the summer of 2009. He mostly focused on writing and producing, until spring 2014 when he was moved into the anchor chair.
Peter describes himself as a sports nut, who is always up for new adventures.
When he is not at work, Peter enjoys going to the gym, and sampling as much of Beijing’s cuisine as he can.
