While at Towson, Brendan was involved with the student-run radio station, XTSR, and interned for the Towson Sports Network during his junior year. During his last collegiate semester, he had the chance to intern at WBAL TV 11 in Baltimore, where he gained valuable newsroom experience.

Brendan grew up in Laurel Springs, N.J. where he got his first on-camera experience at Sterling High School, where he anchored the Channel 19 Knightline news for four years.
