Career Summary

Brad Hamilton is an experienced multi-media journalist currently working as both a news and sports reporter in the Brainerd studios of Minnesota’s PBS Lakeland News. He is a good writer and storyteller with natural reporter instincts and a passion for success.

This is Brad’s first station experience but not his first in media. He worked as a radio broadcaster for minor league baseball affiliate, the Aberdeen IronBirds and spent two seasons as a color analyst for Kent State University’s ESPN3 production of Women’s Volleyball and Basketball.

Brad’s passion for journalism runs in his family. Both of his parents are journalists and met while working at WBNS-10TV in Columbus. Growing up, he says, there was always either a game or the local Cleveland news on in my house. My parents are my hero’s. I always wanted to be just like them.

This summer Brad is set to marry his fiancé, Brittney. They met at Kent State as Brittney played four years of Volleyball for the “Golden Flashes.” Brad is quick to add that Brittney is by far the better athlete. A healthy dose of self-deprecation goes a long way; Brad was a four-year letterman on KSU’s Division I baseball team. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Kent State with a major in broadcast journalism.
