Brandie Perron

Advanced Producer and Director

Brandie Perron is an Advanced Producer and Director for SCETV in Columbia. She graduated from the University of Iowa with a double major in Journalism and Mass Communications, and Theatre Arts. After graduation Brandie moved to South Carolina to start her career in television news. With a passion for learning new skills, she worked her way up from a production assistant to a photojournalist and then onto a reporter. On her journey to ETV, Brandie made a pitstop as a regional Producer/Editor for Time Warner Cable Media, and dabbled in the advertising and public relations industry in Myrtle Beach as a Video Producer, Public Relations Associate and Social Media Marketer. Brandie has won awards for producing, videography and editing, including a Telly Award, a Southeast Emmy Award, and a Communicator Award. With a passion for serving the public by creating thought-provoking videos and helping document South Carolina’s history, she’s always looking to meet new people and share the stories of her fellow South Carolinians.

South Carolina has held a special place in Brandie’s heart since she was a baby. Each and every year (sometimes three times a year), Brandie’s family would drive more than 1000 miles to visit her grandparents in Columbia and vacation along the gorgeous beaches in our state. Family is paramount to Brandie, and several of her family members now call this beautiful state home. The family got a little bigger in November 2018.  Brandie and her husband, Matt, welcomed their first little one into this world. Aurora is the light of their lives and their fur babies now have a human sibling.
