Before joining 11Alive as chief investigator seven years ago, Brendan spent a quarter century anchoring and reporting for several network affiliates around the nation, including five years at Houston’s KPRC, and another five at WCBS in New York City. He was embedded with the US Army as a war correspondent during the Iraq war, completing multiple reporting tours in the Middle East.
