Sydney Brandt is a multimedia journalist for KSBY News. She started with the station in 2020.
A California native originally from outside the Sacramento area, Sydney came to the Central Coast to attend Cal Poly where she majored in broadcast journalism and minored in psychology. Her love of storytelling didn't start as a Mustang, but when she was just a freshman in high school.
Sydney credits her experiences at Cal Poly and as an intern at KCRA-TV in Sacramento with giving her the skills needed to land her first professional job as a journalist at KSBY. And she is grateful to be able to do what she loves in her home state and right here on the Central Coast.
Sydney loves the outdoors and when she's not working on a story, she can be found hiking, walking the beach, or stretching a yoga pose. And one day, she says she will learn how to surf.
