Brian Collister is an award-winning investigative reporter and creator of the Investigative Network.

Brian worked as the senior reporter in the investigative team for KXAN, the NBC affiliate television station in Austin, Texas. He specialized in uncovering fraud, corruption and government waste.

In 2017, Brian’s investigation into the racial profiling records of Austin Police and the Texas Department of Safety was recognized with an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award. The investigation uncovered overwhelming evidence that law enforcement was subverting racial profiling statistics by consistently misreporting the race of minority motorists during traffic stops. His investigations have resulted in the criminal convictions of public officials, passage of new laws and embezzled public funds being returned to taxpayers.
