Brenna Greene has long had a passion for sideline reporting. Thanks to her new job, there will be plenty of opportunities, and they will be in her hometown. An STAA member, Greene is joining KOIN 6 in Portland, OR as a sports anchor/reporter.
“I’m so excited to cover the teams I was raised on in my youth, along with the new teams that have come over the 12 years I have been away,” Greene wrote on Twitter.
Greene is a 2014 graduate of Gonzaga University. As a senior, she was ranked as the 9th most outstanding collegiate sportscaster in STAA’s annual All-America program. Among Greene’s jobs during school was sideline reporting for Gonzaga’s women’s basketball and baseball for Gonzaga University Television’s “Remotes” class.
“I’m pumped to get to do more sideline reporting as [KOIN] has many live sports rights.” It’s my favorite thing to do in this job and I can’t wait to get more tastes of it,” Greene enthuses.
After receiving her diploma, Greene spent two years as a sports anchor/reporter at KRTV in Great Falls, MT. Next was two years at KRNV in Reno, NV before returning to Spokane and KREM TV. Just six months after joining the station, she was promoted to Sports Director. Now she is returning home to The City of Roses.
“It was going to take a really special gig for me to leave KREM, and I think you can tell from the way I’m speaking that this was certainly it.”
