Brianna Weaver is a boss and she is a woman with a plan. Weaver is a sports and entertainment connoisseur –- from hosting, to production, to consulting, she is your go-to woman for sports and entertainment.
Weaver, a 24-year-old graduate of Florida A&M University, is employed by the Atlanta Falcons.
Growing up, Weaver was always striving for greatness. Her four years at FAMU were stepping stones to where she is in her life today. Weaver has accomplished many goals while studying at FAMU.
She was a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi pageant. She was part of the 42nd and 43rd Student Senate at FAMU. She was part of the FAMU Elite Dancing Squad. She was a radio personality on WANM’s 90.5, FAMU’s radio station.
She was also a member of the Big Sister Little Sister mentoring program. During her last year at Florida A&M, Weaver interned with CNN and BET Networks in New York City.
The Orlando native graduated from FAMU with a degree in business administration.
“Good things come to those who hustle,” said Weaver. “I am an advocate for creating opportunities for myself while reaching back to create opportunities for leaders to come.
“If nothing else, FAMU taught me how to grind. The soft skills you learn at FAMU truly prepare you to excel in whatever industry it is that you are a part of. In the entertainment industry, it’s a lot about who you know and FAMU not only taught me how to network, but taught me how to utilize the resources and people around me,” Weaver said.
Weaver began her journalism journey on her YouTube channel, As Told by Bri, where she can be found interviewing some of the industry’s brightest stars, including Will Packer, Keith Powers, Zaytoven, Tisha Campbell Martin, Omar Epps, DJ Drama and more. Along with hosting various events, red carpets, and panel discussions, Weaver is a sales consultant for the Atlanta Falcons.
“Brianna has always been a hard worker. She never lets up, she is always grinding. She aims for greatness and you can tell she is well prepared for the industry she is in,” said Jasmine Louis, a FAMU alumna.
Malik Johnson, who wants to return back to the School of Business and Industry next semester, is inspired by Weaver. “Watching Brianna via social media keeps me motivated. As a student preparing to return to SBI, I see her doing big things all the time. I am excited to graduate because I see all the opportunities she’s created for herself and I will definitely do the same.”
Weaver encourages young entrepreneurs to continue to work hard and chase their dreams. “My hustle and drive are worth far more than talent itself and it is important that you always create your own opportunities and have ambition and work ethic to match your drive,” Weaver said.
