Talking Germany

Brent Goff, Journalist

Brent Goff is one of Deutsche Welle’s best known faces. Born in 1972, the American journalist has been presenting DW-TV’s Journal for many years and recently began hosting the station’s new chat show, Agenda.

Brent Goff was born in 1972 in Wilson, North Carolina. He grew up on a former tobacco plantation which his grandfather still ran. He became a scholarship student at a boarding school for the gifted in Durham, North Carolina.

A ten-month stay as an exchange student in Saarland awakened his interest in Germany. He returned to Germany as a Fulbright scholar and later as a journalist for CNN, before signing on as a presenter at Deutsche Welle. One reason for that was his enthusiasm for Berlin. In addition, Brent Goff teaches journalism at the Hamburg Media School as a guest lecturer. In his free time he works out under the guidance of a personal trainer in a fitness studio three times a week.
