Pennsylvania Outdoor Life producer Brian Hollingshead joined the WNEP-TV family in 2000, 11 days after graduation from college. He graduated from Kutztown University with a bachelor’s degree in telecommunications.

While at Kutztown, Brian interned with WNEP and was assigned to work with Pennsylvania Outdoor Life. He immediately fell in love with the show and, through his appreciation of the outdoors, decided that working on the show is what he wanted to do.

Brian spent two years in the news department as a photographer until the fall of 2002 when the position he dreamed for opened. Since then Brian has been the guy behind the camera on everything from deer hunts, bass fishing trips, along with a variety of other outdoor activities.

When Brian is not enjoying the outdoors while on the clock, you can pretty much bet that he’ll be enjoying them with his friends and family. He is and avid hunter and fisherman to which he thanks his grandfather and father for instilling in him. He is a member of the Trevorton East End Rod and Gun Club located in Weikert, Pennsylvania.

Brian was raised in Shamokin, Northumberland County and graduated from Shamokin Area High School. He now resides in the Wyoming Valley with his wife Caitlyn and sons Braedon and Bryce.
