Brady Halbleib was born and raised in Santa Cruz, California. He joined the Local News 8 team in July 2018, after he graduated from Hofstra University with a Masters of Journalism.
While at Hofstra, Brady spent much of his time working for his school’s news station, interning in Manhattan and surfing Lido Beach, Long Island, regardless of the weather. Throughout his time at Hofstra, he had the opportunity to work for PBS, NBC News, CNN and ABC News, where he became a true news junkie.
During his downtime, Brady enjoys playing basketball, lifting weights and enjoying great food. During the winter, he is looking forward to trading in his surfboard and replacing it with a snowboard.
Brady is an ocean lover at heart, but he is excited to explore his new home in Pocatello. He looks forward to meeting new people and learning more about the Pocatello community. If you see him on the street, feel free to say hello!
