Brendan Parker is the Sports Anchor on Global News at 11. He’s been with Global Calgary for over six years.
Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Brendan knew from an early age he wanted to pursue a career in sports broadcasting.
After graduating from Western Academy Broadcasting College, he began a working tour through Saskatchewan cities. Including stops in North Battleford, Yorkton, Regina, Prince Albert and Saskatoon, before making the jump to Alberta in 2008, and has called Calgary home ever since.
Brendan has been fortunate to cover some major sporting events like the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, Stanley Cup playoffs, and multiple Grey Cups. But his true passion is amateur sports. Meeting incredible local athletes and sharing their stories. Always active in the community, Brendan has also been involved with several charities including one of his favourites the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation.
When not watching or talking sports, you’ll find Brendan searching for his—currently misplaced—inner athlete, as well as spending time with his wife and two kids.
