Born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Brendan realized early in life, playing professional sports wasn’t a realistic life choice. That’s when the new dream began, to work in sports broadcasting. He says “I’ve been living the dream ever since.”
After graduating from Western Academy Broadcasting College in Saskatoon, he began a working tour of SK cities. Including his first job in the industry at CJNB radio in North Battleford in 2005. Shortly after that he got his first job in TV, in Yorkton. After stops in Regina, Prince Albert and Saskatoon, he made the jump to Alberta.
Brendan is new to the Global Calgary team, but has been covering Calgary’s sports scene for 3 years with Shaw TV, where he was also Host of the WHL on Shaw.
He lists covering the Vancouver Winter Olympics, Grey Cup, Tim Horton’s Brier and Heritage Classic as some of his career highlights. But also takes great pride in meeting incredible local athletes and sharing their stories.
When not at work, you’ll find Brendan spending time with his wife Rachelle, or playing every sport possible, hockey, golf and snowboarding rank at the top of the list.
