Since then Brian has been the guy behind the camera on everything from deer hunts, bass fishing trips and everything in between. He also does all things “technical” from the shows social media platforms such as instagram and facebook, to all of the website work on wnep.com/pol. Brian is also FAA certified as a small unmaned aircraft pilot in which he utilizes to bring you the great drone aerial shots that are often used in the program.

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.
