It started in 1995, when an 11-year-old Brennan was inspired by the journalist he saw on TV.

“I remember watching Peter Overton as one of the new faces filling in behind the desk on Daybreak, Nightline and National Nine News,” he told 9Honey.

“I thought to myself – How did he start his media career? Times were very different back then. I couldn’t just jump online to read a bio about a journalist or send a direct message on Twitter to ask a question.”

Keen to get career advice, Brennan decided to write to his idol.

“The only way was to hand write a letter by snail mail and hope for a reply,” he explained.

And he got the reply he wished for; a hand-written letter from Overton encouraging him to follow his dreams. Brennan went on to study journalism at university, before establishing a 10-year career as a producer in radio.

In 2014, things came full-circle when Brennan joined Channel 9 as a publicist. He worked in Perth before moving to Sydney and teaming up with the man who first inspired him.

A recent trip back home uncovered the original letter he received from Overton 23 years ago, which he decided to show to his now-colleague.

“I couldn’t believe it when Peter Brennan came and showed me the letter and told me how he had written to me,” Overton told 9Honey.

“Peter is brilliant in his role as a publicist, and as I re-read the letter I felt great joy and pride that the young bloke I had replied to all those years ago was now living his dream.

“ As for the words on the paper (“as for my future one day I would like to be a newsreader”), they didn’t surprise me because my dream as a young bloke was to work in television, and my dream had come true.

“So, my words of encouragement to Peter to pursue his dream is only magnified by seeing the end result….both colleagues here at Nine.”

Overton explained that the letter that meant so much is particularly special in these modern times.

“Letters are rare, people are more upfront these days and will come up to you in the street or at the shops and ask advice,” he said.

“I always offer encouragement and support. But I remind them that they have to be passionate about telling stories.”
