Brendan's passion has always been sports whether he is covering or playing them. He now gets to do it for living in Rapid City, South Dakota at KOTA-TV & KEVN-TV.

He grew up in Denver, Colorado, and yes, he is a die-hard Broncos, Rockies, Nuggets, Avalanche, and Colorado Buffaloes fan. He loves the outdoors and enjoys exploring all that the Black Hills has to offer.

Brendan graduated from the University of Colorado (Go Buffs!) with a BA in Broadcast News Journalism and a minor in Communications.

At CU he worked in the Sports Information Department and was on the Digital Media Team. Brendan was an anchor on two local stations in Boulder, NewsTeam Boulder and BuffSports Live. He also interned with the PAC-12 Network helping create game day stories.
