Brandon Cruz FOX 6 – Career
The quest began with him completing every available book report about sports, sportsmen, or broadcasters that he was assigned. The love persisted as he progressed through high school. He began his career as a journalist for “The Amadon,” the Amador Valley High School newspaper in Pleasanton, California. If you’re wondering where “The Amadon” comes from, our mascot is the Dons. The next year, he was appointed as the paper’s sports editor. He subsequently took his talents to Southern California and Long Beach State University, where he got his first big break. Gary Cruz, an Emmy-winning sports anchor, accepted a position at KCAL in Los Angeles, just up the street.
He provided him the opportunity to intern and learn from the best sportscaster he’d ever met, as well as a wonderful bunch of individuals. During his five years at KCAL, he also had the opportunity to meet and spend some time with Scully at Dodger Stadium. He rose up the ranks and began producing sports, covering many of the same players about whom he had written book reports as a child. He was employed as Sports Director at KVEW-KAPP in the Tri-Cities, Washington. He then worked in sports in Pocatello, Idaho, Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Denver, Colorado until moving to Milwaukee in 2006.
In Milwaukee, he has had the opportunity to cover the Packers, including Brett Favre’s final season in green and gold, the Brewers’ return to the playoffs for the first time since 1982, and their NLCS runs in 2011 and 2018. Covering basketball in this city has been incredible, especially since the Bucks drafted Giannis Antetokounmpo and he covered their postseason runs, including their trip in the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals. The Wisconsin Final Four experience, which resulted in a loss to Duke in the NCAA Championship Game, was one of the most amazing moments I’ve been a part of. In addition, the virtually annual opportunity to cover Marquette in the NCAA Tournament has resulted in some fantastic stories.
In 2009, his life altered once more. He transitioned from sports to news when he joined FOX6 as a general assignment reporter. The shift was far more joyful than he had anticipated. He has witnessed firsthand the remarkable transformations that have occurred in Wisconsin. He has told the stories that matter to you, from the Packers’ Super Bowl run in 2011 to the protests against Act 10 days later and the related recall races to the extraordinary weather they have suffered. The national political landscape then turned its attention to Wisconsin, and he was able to sit down with the eventual Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, and explain why he was running for the highest position in the land.
He also informed you about former President Bill Clinton campaigning for President Barack Obama and the President himself, who visited our state several times. His career life altered again in June of 2014 when he transitioned from reporting to sports. He’s narrating anecdotes about the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Bucks, Marquette University, and Wisconsin athletics, among other things. During football season, he also hosts the FOX6 High School Blitz. Along with providing daily sports news, he also shares unique stories that take you “Beyond the Game.” This is an opportunity he is relishing because it allows him to bring you stories that are more than just the x’s and o’s of sports and more of the people who are the true narrative.
