During his ABC 7 tenure, Brown has anchored extensive coverage of the 2016 Chicago Cubs World Series Championship win. He has also anchored live from natural disasters, telling the stories of people in Coal City and Fairdale, Illinois, after tornadoes devastated their hometowns.
Brown's ability to make viewers and live audience's feel at home has made him a natural to be tapped for many of ABC 7's programming efforts. He often fills in as co-host of Chicago's #1 daytime talk show, Windy City LIVE. He has hosted ABC 7's Pride Parade broadcast, the Columbus Day Parade and the hour-long, nationally syndicated special, The Magnificent Mile Lights Festival. He has been a regular featured reporter on the Bud Billiken Parade, the largest African-American parade, and second largest parade in the United States. He is a featured host in Chicago's highest-rated local program each year, ABC 7's New Year's Eve special, Countdown Chicago.
Prior to joining ABC 7 Eyewitness News, Brown was an Anchor/Correspondent at CBS News where he anchored Up to the Minute, the CBS Morning News and served as fill-in anchor for the weekend editions of CBS Evening News. As a correspondent, he's covered some of the nation's biggest stories including the Boston Marathon bombing and BP Gulf oil spill.
Brown has reported from the White House lawn and U.S. Capitol during healthcare reform and looming government shutdowns. He was at CBS News from 2009 through 2014.
From 2005-2009, Brown was an anchor/reporter for WWBT-TV, the NBC station in Richmond, Virginia.
In addition to winning a national Emmy for his work on 48 HOURS detailing the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers, Brown was honored for his accomplishments in Broadcast Journalism with a National Press Club Award. He was named one of Virginia Commonwealth University's Top 10 graduates of the Last Decade. He was honored with the Chicago Defender's Men of Excellence Award. He is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists and a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University and Matoaca High School.
Brown has served as emcee for Chicago Police and Firefighter graduation ceremonies and has worked with dozens of local organization to provide assistance and relief to at-risk youth on Chicago's South Side.
Just months after he joined ABC 7, Brown showed nerves of steel when he volunteered to ride with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels at the Air & Water Show. He survived the challenge with flying colors but quipped, "Riding in a jet travelling at 700 mph was quite a thrill.....a thrill I won't be undertaking any time soon."
