Ted Canova isn't sure what sparked his curiosity but here are a few ideas.


  • At 11, he would call-in to radio sports shows to ask a question.
  • At 14, he was delivering newspapers and writing letters to the editor about the president and lobbyists.
  • By 18, he was a college reporter covering bare-knuckle politics at Boston City Hall and the Massachusetts State House.
  • In his first "real" job, Ted was reporting in New Hampshire, interviewing all the presidential candidates in the year leading up to the nation's first primary.

Throughout his career, Ted has been on the forefront of overlaying new media with traditional approaches to news coverage, storytelling, and strategy. He has led news teams to produce award-winning, thoughtful and impactful news including continuous live coverage of hurricanes and tornadoes and the plane crash that killed Senator Paul Wellstone. 


Ted is an Edward R. Murrow Award winning News Director who has led major market news departments across the United States. Ted served as Executive Editor of investigative reports including a Murrow and Clarion Award winning probe into human trafficking. And when bombings ripped across the Boston Marathon finish line, Ted was back in front of the microphone, co-anchoring 21 hours of live, unscripted, award-winning coverage. 


Ted has also helped organizations and non-profits find their voice, improve their brand, and connect with new customers. From retail to software, established businesses to start-ups, Ted has developed successful integrated marketing strategies.


Today, Ted is immersed in digital storytelling with his latest project the Front Porch Movement. His R&D led to him building the website, the portal for podcasts he hosts, short-form videos he produces and social media engagement he leads.
