Brandon Cruz has been hired as a full-time reporter at WITI, FOX 6 in Milwaukee after more than 3 years as a freelancer at the station. He’ll be working Tuesday through Saturday nights and will also be a back-up sports anchor.
“I’m really happy to get the full-time reporter job at Fox 6 because I’ve been able to make the station home,” Brandon tells me. “Milwaukee is important to me in so many ways, but most importantly, it’s where I met my wife. This job now allows us to stay here in her hometown and close to her family.”
Brandon’s career has mainly been in sports. Prior to freelancing at WITI, he was a sports anchor/reporter at WDJT-58, the CBS affiliate in Milwaukee. Before that, he was a freelance sports anchor at KRON-4 in San Francisco. He was previously a sports host/reporter for Altitude Sports & Entertainment and weekend sports anchor/reporter at KOAA in Colorado Springs.
Originally from Pleasanton, CA he started his career as a producer at KCAL-9 in Los Angeles and took his first on-air job at KVEW-KAPP in the Tri-Cities, WA as a sports director.
