The Southington Observer welcomes Brian Jennings as our new sports writer for Southington sports.

Brian is a 2011 Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) graduate with a bachelor’s in Communication (broadcast journalism) and a minor in Journalism. He served internships with CPTV Sports and WFSB Channel 3 Eyewitness News.

As a student, Brian was a staff writer for the Recorder Newspaper at CCSU and a color commentator for CCSU Blue Devils football through the CCSU radio station (WFCS 107.7 FM). He also anchored, produced, and directed with CCSU TV News and hosted a live sports talk show at WFCS.

Brian has experience as a sports writer, but he also brings experience in digital film and television production. Those skills will come in handy as the Observer continues to build our on-line presence this year.

“We are excited to welcome Brian to our staff. His multi-media background will be instrumental as we continue to broaden and deepen our coverage of Southington sports,” said Observer editor John Goralski. “He is committed to continuing our tradition of superior local sports coverage as we continue to look for ways to deliver information quicker and better than anyone else.”
