Born in South Australia, Brenton has an extensive background in broadcast media, public relations, emergency services, weather, defence & tourism.
Prior to starting with Nine as their weather presenter in 2008, Brenton was a media spokesperson for the SA Country Fire Service, and a fire & emergencies reporter for ABC radio.
He graduated from a Masters Degree in Communication at UniSA in 2007, followed by a year in Public Affairs for the Department of Defence, both in Adelaide & Canberra.One of his first jobs after finishing Blackwood High School was voicing national forecasts for Telstra’s ‘Dial-it Weather Information Service’ before working full-time as a Radio Announcer on Adelaide’s 107.9 Life.
Over that same period, Brenton studied a Diploma of Business in Tourism, which led to casual work as a driver/tour guide for Grayline.
Outside of Nine, Brenton is a regular event host, speaker & commentator & still provides support to the CFS as an advocate for fire safety & prevention. He is also an Ambassador for the CFS Foundation, Professional Firefighters Foundation, Junction Australia, ‘Watch Around Water’ safety initiative, Jodi Lee Foundation, School’s Ministry Group, Masters Swimming & the SA State Aquatic & Leisure Centre.
