Brad is the weekday morning reporter at YNN and he’s the face many Central New Yorkers wake up to each day. Brad comes into work at 3:30 a.m. and many times he’s the first on the scene of an overnight or early morning breaking news story. He has several years of live shot experience and he’s able to gather facts quickly and deliver information smoothly and accurately to viewers in a matter of minutes. In addition to covering breaking news, Brad usually has a good feature story or previews an upcoming event each morning to help you start your day with a smile.
In addition to his regular routine, Brad can be found at the anchor desk or in the YNN traffic studio. Brad’s wealth of local news and sports knowledge make him ideal to cover the events that matter to Central New Yorkers most. Some of Brad’s favorite assignments include following the Syracuse University basketball and football teams and their fans during big games and post season tournaments. Brad has followed SU fans to Buffalo, New York City, Pittsburgh, Boston, Worcester, Cleveland, Memphis and Salt Lake City for the NCAA basketball and Big East Conference tournaments. He also followed football fans to the 2010 New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium and the 2012 College Classic at MetLife Stadium. He serves as our Mohawk Valley reporter for our award winning “First and 10” high school football show.
Brad started at YNN in July of 2004 in our Mohawk Valley newsroom. He’s from Herkimer County and a graduate of Frankfort-Schuyler High School, Herkimer County Community College and the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.
