On this episode of Talking Buffalo, Patrick Moran is joined by WKBW-TV Buffalo sports anchor and reporter Briana Aldridge for a conversation about her life and career so far that’s recorded live from Imperial Pizza from South Buffalo.

Briana has been crushing it since coming to Buffalo in 2022 to join the Channel 7 sports team. They have a conversation about what led her to coming to Western New York and if it was a difficult decision for her at the time. Despite being young and relatively new(ish) to sports broadcasting professionally, Briana’s incredibly traveled and has lived in many parts of the country. She talks about being born and raised in California and also spend time in several other places either professionally or educationally—including Georgia, West Virgina, Louisiana, Nebraska and Colorado.

Among other topics discussed is some of Briana’s biggest influences, cultivating personal and professional relationships amongst her peers in the Buffalo market, her views on social media, thoughts on her time so far in Buffalo and of course, a “Fun Fact Finale” to learn even more about one of the sports broadcasting media’s true rising stars.

You can follow Briana on Twitter @BreeAldridge and be sure to check out the amazing works she’d doing at WKBW-TV. Big shout-out and thank you once again to Imperial Pizza for being an awesome host and of course their ridiculously good wings and pizza!
