Bryan Branly is a Webby Award honored, multimedia producer and host.
Bryan grew up in California’s Central Valley. After high school, he relocated to Los Angeles to pursue his creative endeavors in the entertainment industry.
Bryan kicked off his career with internships at CNBC Business News and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” After getting his BA in Film, Television and Digital Media at UCLA, he added several shows to his resume including "The Conspiracy Zone with Kevin Nealon," "Jesse Ventura’s America," "The Apprentice (Season 2)," "Tavis Smiley," "The Swan," "The Sharon Osbourne Show," Discovery Health Channel and "Real Time with Bill Maher."
In 2005, Bryan found himself back at "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," this time as a talent coordinator. He helped book everything from exotic animal handlers to people with bizarre talents. Bryan was a go-to stand in when producers needed someone to rehearse various bits for the show, a gig that eventually landed him in front of the camera in 2009.
Bryan hosted “Backstage With Bryan,” a first-of-its-kind variety show for “The Tonight Show” website and social media platforms. His celebrity interviews, blogs and behind the scenes access gave fans a unique backstage perspective. The show earned Webby Award nominations for “Best Online Film and Video Variety” show (2011, 2012) and Bryan was honored as “Best Web Personality/Host” in 2012.
In 2013-14, Bryan produced human interest and celebrity guests for “The Arsenio Hall Show.” These guests included civilian heroes, inspiring athletes, newsmakers, astronauts, large-scale outdoor demos and more.
In 2016, Bryan hosted a documentary for Fusion highlighting the struggles of the Mole People - the homeless population living in the rain tunnels beneath the Las Vegas Strip. This earned him a Shorty Social Good Award nomination for reporting on hunger and poverty (2018).
Over the years, Bryan has worked as a freelance correspondent for “Extra,” Fusion and EPIX.
NBC once again utilized his talent scouting experience by bringing him on as a casting producer for Season 1 of their hit show, “The Titan Games” (hosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson).
Bryan is currently a casting producer, multimedia journalist (Spectrum News SoCal 1) and continues to present on camera. He is a proud member of SAG-AFTRA.
