Brett Benson grew up in Park City, Utah and attended BYU where he played football during what he calls “the Detmer years.” His wife grew up in Utah as well (she is a University of Utah fan, but Brett is working on that) and they jumped at the chance to move back home after living in Portland, Oregon and Madison, Wisconsin.
Brett graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism from BYU and holds the Broadcast Meteorology Certificate from Mississippi State University and holds the Seal of Approval from the National Weather Association. In addition to his “traditional schooling” he worked five years for Weather Central.
Brett’s first TV job was at Park City Television where he was an anchor, camera operator, editor, sales rep, general manager, you name it. During his time there he met/interviewed many legends in the skiing/snowsports and the independent film industries.
