After spending the last five years in Southern Illinois, Bret is thrilled to be back home, working at the station he grew up watching, WCIA. A native of Mahomet, Bret graduated from Southern Illinois University in 2010. He got his first job in television at WSIL in Carterville and spent four years learning how to be a sports reporter and anchor. When a sports position opened at WCIA in July 2013, he jumped at the opportunity to move back home and serve Central Illinois and Your Local News Leader. Bret was honored to win the 2013 Illinois Silver Dome Award for 'Best Sports Reporter.' He loves to tell unique, outside of the box stories. If you have an idea for Bret, let him know at BBeherns@wcia.com.
Bret lives in Mahomet with his beautiful wife Jenna and his daughter, Aly. He is active in his church and loves to travel, play golf and spend time with his family.
