Brett Connolly joined FOX25 News as a general assignment reporter in January 2011. He hit the ground running, covering breaking news, tracking down exclusive stories, and filling in on the anchor desk.
Brett provided continuous coverage of the 2011 tornadoes that slammed down in western Massachusetts and devastated residents, homes and businesses.
He has also had the pleasure of covering many happy reunions between New England soldiers returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan and their loved ones.
Brett interviewed a proud New Hampshire mother whose two sons served on a history-making mission. Her sons were on board the USS Carl Vinson, the Navy aircraft carrier ship responsible for burying Osama Bin Laden's body at sea.
Brett graduated from Wake Forest University in 2003 and had a successful career in the recruiting industry before redirecting his own career to news reporting. He earned a Masters in the Broadcast Journalism program at Emerson College and has never looked back!
