Brad Myers started at WECT in 2016, working as the Executive Producer for Carolina in the Morning. He is now the Executive Producer for all newscasts here at WECT/WSFX. Brad is originally from West Virginia, but has been vacationing in the Cape Fear his entire life. His first beach trip was to Topsail Island at just 10-weeks-old, and it's always held a special place in his heart. In fact, he and his wife were married on North Topsail Beach in 2006. When it comes to news, he says it's just in his blood. There is nothing else he'd rather do than to be in the newsroom covering breaking news. It's very similar to playing sports, and since there was little to no chance he was going to be a professional athlete, this was as close as he could get. Brad started out at WSAZ in Huntington, WV in 2004. He served as an intern for two weeks before being hired as a part-time producer. He is blessed to have been given the opportunity to try a lot of different roles in news over the years - a producer, reporter, anchor, sports reporter/anchor, and now executive producer. Brad is happy to now call Wilmington home. If you have any questions, comments or story ideas, please send them his way.
