Remembering Rich Brenner
Born in Merchantville, New Jersey, Rich spent the summer of 1967, between his sophomore and junior years of college, as a correspondent in Vietnam. Rich served in the Marines, and then began his full-time television career as a sportscaster in 1975 in Lynchburg, VA. He worked in Portsmouth, Va., Raleigh and Chicago before coming to the Triad. He was respected in all areas of sports reporting for his fair and even coverage.
Rich was bigger that just his love of sports, though. He loved people, had a phenomenal memory for faces and names, and had a bone deep love for his Country, his family and for his family of veterans.
