Brian came here from Lafayette, La. He's familiar to many Southeast Texans after spending six years in Lake Charles on Channel 7 and later on Fox 29/11 TV.
Brian's wife Teresa, a Dallas native, passed away from ovarian cancer in August after a two year battle.
Brian and his young daughter Abrianna have made Beaumont their home.
He comes from a broadcast family as his father owned and operated a chain of radio stations in upstate New York. Brian went to work with his dad from the age of 12 spending many Saturday mornings playing newsman behind a microphone in a back studio.
After spending many years in radio, Brian switched to television news at Cable News Network in Atlanta. He's been in front of the camera ever since and brings his experience to the KBMT newsroom.
