Brian Geisinger

While he could probably do the job of the news director (who JUST got got on snapchat last week) better than him, for now Brian is working for Sports Channel 8 because he can work from home and they agreed to pay for half of his NBA League Pass. Next he’ll probably either work for his friend’s new bakery in downtown Raleigh or tend bar because at least those places he’ll meet girls. He’s also a Wake Forest fan from Guilford County who went to State.
