Busting Through the Glass Ceiling

Just before she graduated from Gonzaga in 2014 with a degree in broadcasting and electronic media, Brenna Greene signed the GUTV cable tray like every other senior who works in the studio.

In green sharpie, along with her name on that tray is a quote that she wrote: “They tell me I majored in broadcasting, I say that I majored in storytelling.”

Almost 5 years later, Greene is now getting to tell those stories as the Sports Director at KREM in Spokane.

In her new position, Greene is in charge of nearly every aspect of the outlet’s sporting news. She schedules everything sports related, is the main sports anchor, helps produce and edit content and does all of this while running the KREM sports social media.

Even with all of those responsibilities Greene still finds time to do what she loves most.

“My favorite part about my job is being able to tell other people’s stories,” Greene said. “I see it as such an honor and a privilege to be able to do that, and I find it so fulfilling.”

Greene is making her mark in the field. When she was promoted to the position of sports director last year, she officially became the first female sports director for any media outlet in Spokane history.

“Being a female in a male dominated profession has its challenges because you’re always going to be in the minority,” Greene said. “And even though I didn’t set out with the goal [of being the first female sports director in Spokane] in mind, I’m really honored to be the one that broke that barrier.”

This isn’t the first time Greene has been a trailblazer for women broadcasters.

Shortly after graduating from GU, she got a job as a sports anchor in Great Falls, Montana, where she was the only female sports anchor in the entire state for the first year she worked there.

FTVLive has the feeling that she will continue the move up in markets.
