Pensacola Right Now with Branden Rathert
Each afternoon, Branden “opines” on the day’s most interesting news with commentary—and his own unique sense of humor.
Branden joined NewsRadio1620 in 2009, moving to Pensacola from Idaho, where he hosted the number one morning show in Twin Falls and Boise. In Twin Falls, he created the “60 Hours to Fight Hunger” and to date, the initiative has raised money to feed more than 20,000 families. He was also active in several civic and charitable organizations. In 2011, Brandon’s documentary “Living Homeless inPensacola” garnered him a First Place Documentary Award from the Florida Associated Press Broadcasters Association, and in 2012 he won a prestigious Edward R. Murrow regional award from the Radio Television News Directors Association. The award was for his special program, “ECSO 24”—produced after spending 24 hours with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Department.
Branden always enjoyed the snow sports of Idaho, but now can be frequently found snorkeling off the beaches around Pensacola.
