After being a part of the Channel 11-WPXI news team for five years, general assignment reporter Brandon Hudson announced March 4, on Facebook, by video, that he will be leaving the Pittsburgh station to go to Philadelphia’s NBC affiliate, WCAU, where he will serve in the same capacity. His last day with the station will be March 16.
“This new opportunity presents a new set of challenges, which I’m very excited about. I think of myself as a goal-oriented person, especially when it comes to my career,” Hudson said about his new endeavor. “After meeting their news director, Anzio Williams, he told me what their team was about, and it was a chance I couldn’t pass up. I always said it would take a remarkable opportunity for me to leave Pittsburgh, and that’s what happened.”
Hudson joined WPXI in January of 2011 after reporting for FOX 44 in Burlington, Vt., and ABC affiliate, WDHN, prior to that.
In addition to covering news in the Greater Pittsburgh area, Hudson is a member of the Catholic Charities Executive Board, volunteers with youth at St. Catherine of Sweden Church in Allison Park, and enjoys playing and watching sports. He is also a 2013 recipient of the New Pittsburgh Courier Fab 40 Award, just to name a few.
