Brenden Mincheff joined the StormTracker 9 team in December 2020.
Brenden was born and raised in Central Florida. In 2004, Hurricanes Charley, Frances, and Jeanne all made landfall in Central Florida, and it sparked Brenden’s love for the weather.
In 2020, Brenden achieved his lifelong goal of becoming a meteorologist when he graduated with a B.S. in Meteorology from Metropolitan State University of Denver.
While at MSU Denver, Brenden spent more than two years with student media, even serving as the general manager for the university’s student-run television station during that time, and was nominated for a Student Emmy.
When not watching the news or forecasting the weather, you can probably find Brenden reading, cooking, or cheering on his hometown Tampa Bay Lightning and Orlando City Soccer Club.
Brenden is thrilled to be working his dream job and serving the people of West Texas. If you ever see him out and about, be sure to say hello!
