From the 305 to the 405, I’m happy to call Oklahoma City home.

I joined Oklahoma’s News 4 in November 2018 after spending more than four years anchoring and reporting for WHNT News 19, KFOR’s sister station in Huntsville, Alabama. Here, you can catch me anchoring the 9pm news on KAUT and reporting in the field on KFOR.

A Miami native of Jamaican descent, I am a proud ‘Cane, graduating from the University of Miami in 2013 where I joined Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

After graduating, I moved to Gulfport/Biloxi, Mississippi as one of the first reporters for WXXV News 25, a startup news product that launched in 2013.

When I’m not working the camera, you can catch me at car shows or sports events, cooking Jamaican food, or traveling.

Have a tip or an idea? I want to hear from you! I enjoy communicating with our viewers. Follow me on Twitter @FinesseBryan or email me at
