During his time there he was promoted to morning meteorologist and eventually chief meteorologist before moving to Lincoln.

When not working on or delivering a weather forecast, you can usually find Brandon watching a movie, at a rock concert or hanging out with friends. He also enjoys watching and going to see several sports including basketball, football, baseball, hockey and auto racing.
