Brown began her career as a reporter and anchor at WPDE-TV in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Brown has also covered several presidential campaigns and candidates and covered the move of the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia in 2004 to its new home across Independence Park for CBS nationally. Her work has earned her three local Emmy Awards.

The Philadelphia chapter of the NAACP has named her to its “Most Influential Black Women” list twice. Brown has also been active in supporting the stations’ efforts on behalf of Susan G.
