Brian Winner joined the WAVE 3 Sports team in September of 2011. Although this isn't his first time working here. He was a sports intern here during his winter break from December 2010 through January 2011.

Brian is a born and raised Louisvillian. He graduated from St. Xavier High School in 2007. He graduated from Western Kentucky University with a major in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in entrepreneurship in May of 2011.

Brian has followed all sports since he was a kid, but his favorites are the NFL and the NBA. He has been playing almost every sport since he was a kid. In his spare time he enjoys listening to music and of course watching sports.

In March 2016, Brian captured a full-court buzzer beater at a high school basketball playoff game. The highlight went viral on social media and even made ESPN's Top Play on SportsCenter.

Since his time at WAVE 3 News, he's been fortunate enough to cover the UK and UofL men's national championship basketball teams in 2012 and 2013, as well as the UofL women, who also played for the title in 2013.

Being a Louisville native, Brian has developed a love affair with horse racing and counts American Pharoah's 2015 Triple Crown triumph as one of his career highlights.

Brian also ranks among his highlights having covered former Louisville Bat Todd Frazier, who as a Cincinnati Red in front of his home fans, claimed the 2015 Home Run Derby crown during All-Star festivities. Brian stuck around the following night to cover the MLB All-Star game for WAVE 3 News.
