He was a local boy,
just out of Chamberlain High School when he joined the Army. Bryan
Brewer was fresh out of Uncle Sams service, enrolled at
the university of south Florida, and then a tour of duty with
Newsradio 970 WFLA.
Bryan was famous at the courthouse, his long
hair a definite clash with the typical reporter types that infested
such government buildings. They loved Bryan, who earned a reputation
as being the go to guy in the newsroom. He could get
the big story, and he had the confidence of many of the players
in Tampa Bays unique political arena.
Bryan Brewer gave Bay Area listeners the best
coverage of the NASA launches. He was as common a fixture at the
Cape as NBCs Jay Barberie.
Bryan retired from broadcasting in the mid
90s, and is now working on computers. He builds them, fixes them
and plays with them.
Bryan Brewer is a natural for the Tampa
Bay Radio Hall of Fame.
