Brandon Lewis joined WTAP in October 2016 as a weekend reporter.

Despite growing up in Queens, NY and attending Boston for college, Brandon is excited to work in the more relaxed Mid-Ohio Valley.

As a kid, he enjoyed creative writing whether it meant writing short stories for English class or creating poems about his life. He got his first taste of journalism as the morning announcer for his high school. While at Boston University, he realized he wanted to pursue broadcast journalism because it fused writing and creativity.

During his college career, Brandon worked as a reporter for the student-run organizations, the Boston University News Service and BUTV10. His story about a BU grad who became the first Latino elected to the city council of Haverhill, Massachusetts received an honorable mention at the 2016 NATAS Student Emmys.

His favorite story was a profile of an Ethiopian immigrant living in Boston who provided food and clothes to orphans in his native country.

In addition to reporting all over Boston, he interned at local, national, and international stations. His favorite experiences were at CBS News and Nine Network Australia. Both internships solidified his dream of becoming a network correspondent.

Outside of journalism, he enjoys visiting art galleries and museums, eating out, and ballin’ on a budget. If you ever see him out and about in the community, feel free to say hello.
