AHA Profile: Pat Nevin

Pat Nevin
Vice President, General Manager
Fox 10 & My 45

Health and wellness has always played a significant role in Pat Nevin’s life. But today it takes on whole new meaning.

“In 2009, I competed in six triathlons in Phoenix, Payson, and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho,” he says. “I hope to compete in at least 10 events in 2010, starting (with) this year’s triathlon season with the Navy Seals 1/2 Ironman race in April in San Diego (1.2-mile ocean swim, 56-mile bike, 13.1-mile run).”

In addition to being an avid runner, Nevin serves as vice president and general manager for FOX 10 and My 45 in Phoenix. Since 2004, Nevin has been responsible for all departments within the television stations’ operations in the nation’s 12th largest television market. With more than two decades of television experience, Nevin has helped increase the top-rated station’s viewing audience by serving the interests of the community, and staying actively engaged with station clients and station viewers throughout the Valley.

“Heart disease and its complications impact many of our television station’s viewers, our employees and their families — plus heart disease runs in my family. Several years ago my grandfather passed away from heart complications,” Nevin says.

As a married father of two, Nevin’s family is a top priority and passion in his life. It’s for this reason, and many others, that he remains committed to a heart-healthy lifestyle and he is leading by example.  “Keeping my heart healthy is something I take seriously,” he says, “and it’s great because I’m actually managing to have a lot fun in the process!”
