Brennan Phillips

Brennan Phillips may not have been born in the Okanagan, but he was raised here, and is thankful every day that he gets to live and work in one of the most beautiful places in Canada. Beginning with an internship at the Penticton Western in 2018, Brennan has worked his way up from covering weekends and special events, to a full-time reporter with the community newspaper. He is excited to continue to cover all of the community goings-on and looks forward to being back out among the people to hear their stories.
