Brian Calvert

Northwest Newsradio Anchor

Brian is what we call a true “morning person,” which is why he feels right at home helping you get your day started here on 97.7 FM/AM 1000.

He’s one of the original members of our news team, here since day one when we began the all-news format.  You may also see Brian on KOMO 4 TV regularly, where can be seen reading the news and delivering your weather forecast.

“I think this position, by far, is my favorite radio job to date,” he says about co-hosting the morning news. “Not only do I get to work alongside Manda and the rest of our team helping people start their day informed, I still have the opportunity to tell my stories.”  Brian is a regional and national Edward R. Murrow Award-winning reporter. And his feature stories are a favorite of 97.7 FM/AM 1000 listeners.

Brian has been a part of radio and television in the Pacific Northwest for well over three decades. His career began in the late 1980s in southern Oregon where he first learned radio broadcasting at KAJO under the tutelage of the Wilson family. From there, he went on to anchor the morning news for KXL in Portland in the 1990s (which is where he met and competed with Manda Factor). Just after the turn of the century, he migrated north to Seattle, and in the summer of 2002, Brian was lured from KIRO to help launch the all-news KOMO Radio (now Northwest Newsradio). He’s also worked on television, anchoring the news and weather locally for KOMO 4 and Northwest Cable News.

Brian and his family call West Seattle home, where he enjoys long walks along Alki Beach. In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, road trips, and volunteering for some of his favorite local charities. He also owns a small production company that produces a regular, family friendly “good news” podcast called The Good Vibecast.
