Brian Neale

Director of News Operations


Brian grew up in the Odessa area, and is a proud Whitworth University alumnus. He and his wife, Nicole, are proud parents to three sons and a daughter. Brian is much more than Director of News Operations at KXLY: he is the "news room dad" who helps young journalists with everything from story pitches, to car maintenance and advice on life. He's also the ultimate navigator. He knows where everything is, and where everything used to be in Eastern Washington. Brian started with 4 News Now in 1991, and has done almost every job in the news room in his three decades here. An avid outdoorsman and highly competitive, his many hobbies include family ping pong tournaments, hiking, exploring history and riding his motorcycle.
