About Brian Thompson:
Thompson has served as a New Jersey reporter for NBC 4 New York since 1998. Thompson’s reporting from the Jersey Shore was part of NBC 4 New York’s coverage of Hurricane Sandy that resulted in the national Edward R. Murrow award, “News 4 New York Special Coverage: Hurricane Sandy.” A year after 9/11, Thompson was the first and only reporter to listen to and air the New Jersey police recordings of the attack on the World Trade Center, a story later nominated for an Emmy® Award. Known for his tenacity and follow-through, Thompson was instrumental in NBC 4 New York’s decision to carry live New York State’s legislative debate on extending rent controls for New York City. In 2005 Thompson earned a New York Emmy Award for his work on NBC 4 New York’s political series “What Matters.” He has been cited by the Associated Press for Best Coverage by a New Jersey-Based Correspondent and was awarded the first Environmental Journalism Award.
