Brett TannehillGeneral Manager
Brett is a 25-year veteran of public television and radio. He's won more than 30 journalism awards, including a national Edward R. Murrow award and RTDNA's international UNITY award for excellence in coverage of diversity issues. He was also lucky enough to spend several years recording commentaries from legendary storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham, which stands as one of his all-time favorite things about working in broadcasting.
Brett is also a musician, an outdoors enthusiast, a certified landscaper and a father. He enjoys donuts, sitting on the porch and taking 'adventure drives' whenever possible. He co-produces the Sundial Writer's Corner, Valley Sounds and the award-winning Public Radio Hour. Brett also served as chairman of the inaugural Huntsville's Music Advisory Board, which works to improve the infrastructure and community awareness of the local performing arts scene.
Our series highlighting Tennessee Valley people, places and events continues with a hike up Monte Sano Mountain. This pristine wilderness area and its abundant water resources were part of the founding of Huntsville. In this edition of Tennessee Valley Explorer, Brett Tannehill takes us to Wildflower Trail, where the waterfalls are putting on quite a show.
Officials in Triana break ground today (6/14/13) on the city's new public library. The former home of the library was destroyed in 2009 by fire. The new library will provide many residents with their only Internet access, and other resources. Brett Tannehill reports.
