Chelsea Brentzel

Chelsea joined the Local News 8 team in September 2014.

She comes to eastern Idaho from the Gulf Coast of Alabama. In May 2014 she graduated from the University of Alabama, earning her degree in broadcast journalism. During her time there, she interned at WALA-TV in Mobile and WBMA-LD in Birmingham.

Chelsea knew she wanted to be in news since she was a little girl. She is passionate about finding and telling stories that impact eastern Idaho.

When Chelsea isn’t out chasing stories, she enjoys exploring her new home, watching college football (Roll Tide!) and cooking.

Chelsea is always looking for the next big story. If you have a story idea, or just want to chat, send her an email at
