Throughout her childhood, Brianna Linn was known to family and friends as the “Linn Family Reporter”. That was because even at a young age, Brianna had a passion for telling stories and a nagging curiosity to stay updated on the latest events. Being a news reporter is something Brianna has always dreamed of, and she could not be happier to start her career as a multimedia journalist at KTRE.
Born and raised in Syracuse, New York Brianna graduated cum laude with a degree in Broadcasting and Mass Communication from the State University of New York at Oswego. While at SUNY Oswego, Brianna was an active member at WTOP-10, the school's award-winning student-run television station. She also worked as a Digital Storytelling and Reporting intern for the Marketing and Communication Department. Shortly after graduation, Brianna joined the KTRE news team as a multimedia journalist in June 2021.
Brianna loves to travel, and is a strong believer in the quote, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”. This sense for adventure ultimately brought her across the country to East Texas to start her career. In her spare time, Brianna loves to read, shop and drink coffee. She also enjoys staying active and exploring new places. She is honored to be able to share the stories of the East Texas community! Feel free to connect with her on social media @briannalinntv.
