Before joining 11Alive five 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. Brendan served briefly as an auxiliary police officer for the NYPD in the years following the 9/11 attacks.

Brendan co-anchors The Reveal and serves as chief investigator, but he works primarily alone as his own photographer, researcher, producer, and video editor. TEGNA Media tapped Brendan as its lead multi-skilled journalist, training MSJs at the company’s more than 60 television stations. He is also on the visiting faculty of Poynter Institute where he teaches Power Reporting.
