What’s good! Thanks for checking out my bio. 

My name is Brandon Hudson. I was born and raised in Alabama but have lived all over the eastern part of the United States. I look forward to my new adventures here in Metro Detroit and Michigan. When I’m not reporting in the field, I’m co-anchoring the 11am newscast during the week. 

The journey here began after I graduated from Florida State University. I worked at tv stations Dothan, Alabama, Burlington, Vermont, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia. During my time in Philly, I covered the Bill Cosby sexual assault trials, rapper Meek Mill’s prison release, the Eagles Super Bowl season, and Villanova mens basketball championships. 

The most meaningful work came in 2020 during the civil uprising in Philadelphia. It was an intense week following George Floyd’s death, which began with violent protests one weekend and ended with one of the largest peace marches the following weekend. In fact, the pandemic provided a chance to connect with the community and amplify the voices of the people who didn’t feel like anyone listened to them. I hope to bring that same motivation to Detroit. 

My greatest accomplishment, or I should say accomplishments, are my three children. As of this writing, I have twin toddlers (son and daughter) and a five-month-old son. They’re a big reason why my wife and I moved here. My wife was raised in Canton and her family still lives here. She’s a Michigan graduate and loves being back home. 

It’s been a warm welcome so far, and I’m excited to make this my home too!
