Brian Banmiller is one of the nation’s most respected and well-known broadcast journalists. He has spent more than 40 years in the news industry, covering business, politics and the economy on television, radio and in print. He continues his four-decade-long career as a national business reporter for CBS News Radio, where his “Banmiller on Business” reports are delivered to an audience of millions nationwide.

Given his proximity to and connections in Silicon Valley, he has been covering the tech industry from its inception as a band of intrepid tinkerers in their garages to today’s global technology platforms used by billions worldwide. Banmiller has interviewed the Valley’s business leaders and innovators, and reported on the economic impact of key issues, including today’s critical debate surrounding Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning, a major topic consuming tech executives who have widely different opinions on both its impact and regulation.

Brian has also reported on the rise, decline and rebirth of Silicon Valley, the fall of communism in Russia, the rise of capitalism in China, the ongoing threat of war in Korea, the economic future of Hong Kong, political instability in the Philippines, constant turmoil in northern Ireland, Brexit in England, the long-term economic impact of Germany’s reunification, and the fractures in the European Union.

He has interviewed Presidents Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, George HW Bush, and Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev. Successful entrepreneurs and industry leaders include Bill Gates, Charles Schwab, William Hewlett, David Packard, John Sculley, William Dell, Peter Thiel, and many others. He uses those experiences in his broadcasting, writing and public speaking assignments, providing valuable (and occasionally humorous) insight to any audience.

As the business editor for KTVU Channel 2 news (Fox) in the San Francisco Bay Area from 1989 to 2005, Brian established himself as one of northern California’s most trusted authorities on Silicon Valley. For seven years he was executive producer and anchor of the nationally syndicated television business news magazine “On The Money with Brian Banmiller” and for five years was managing editor and co-anchor of “Silicon Valley Business”. Prior to joining KTVU Brian was a contributing Correspondent for the Wall Street Journal Report on Television.

A business school graduate of Villanova University, Banmiller spent 5 years as a Regular Officer in the United States Air Force, with tours of duty in Arizona, Vietnam, and Iran. He possessed security clearances above top secret and was discharged with the rank of Captain.
