Brittney ButiReporter/Weekend Anchor

Connect With Brittney Buti

Raised in southwest (Niles) Michigan, Brittney is more than happy to call “up north” her current home.

She attended Ferris State University where she played varsity softball (Go Dawgs!) while studying Television Digital Media Production.

After graduation, Brittney took her first job in news as a production assistant at WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids.

In November 2014, she made her first “big career move” to Traverse City to be the 7&4 News Today morning producer.

With her new found talent and love for producing, she quickly transitioned from day to night and became the 6:00 & 11:00 p.m. news producer.

Then, after nearly four years behind the scenes, Brittney decided to flip the script and explore the other side of the camera.

Since August 2018, Brittney has hit the ground running as a multimedia journalist, embracing the one [wo]man band position.

Her first week as a reporter, she covered the largest national guard exercise in the United States – Exercise Northern Strike at Camp Grayling.

It wasn’t long before she went airborne with the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City as they practiced urban environment flood rescues.

Brittney is constantly looking for stories that give people a different point of view, hold someone accountable, or make a difference in someone’s life.

Outside of the newsroom, you can expect to find Brittney exploring the trails of northern Michigan, or checking out live music at a local brewery.
