Brian Webb joined KPIX 5 as a reporter in August 2013 after spending 7 years in the blazing sun of Phoenix, Arizona, working at KNXV and KTVK as a reporter and anchor. Before that he worked in Kansas City and his first TV job was in Topeka, Kansas.
Brian has covered everything from a wildfire that killed 19 hotshot firefighters in Arizona, to U.S. soldiers on a “peacekeeping mission” during the Bosnia War. But he says the best stories are the ones about one single person trying to make a difference. Like a 90-year-old blind man named Mr. Boggs who refused to pay the new bus fare in Phoenix, not because of the higher rate, but because buying a ticket at the actual bus cost more than if you bought it online. Mr. Boggs wasn’t savvy in the ways of the World Wide Web, but he knew a bad deal when he saw one, or at least when he heard one and the story helped Mr. Boggs make his point.
Brian got into TV journalism simply to have an interesting job, learn how the world works, what motivates people and maybe help a few causes along the way.
Before his career, Brian went to college at Regis University in Denver, Colorado where he received a scholarship to play basketball on its winning division II team. He admits he mostly sat on the bench behind bigger, better players, but wouldn’t trade the experience or the lifelong friends for anything.
Brian grew up in the middle of a wheat field in Newton, Kansas with his parents and younger sister and brother. Brian’s brother also lives in the Bay Area, the rest of his family is still in Kansas. During his time off, Brian and his fiance enjoy getting to know the city and all it has to offer.
