Natasha Brown is the Emmy Award-winning anchor for the weekend evening editions of Eyewitness News on CBS 3 and The CW Philly.

Brown joined CBS 3 as a general assignment reporter in December, 2002. She came to the station from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she has been a reporter and anchor for WPXI-TV.  Previously, she had been a reporter and weekend anchor for WWBT-TV in Richmond, Virginia.

Brown began her career as a reporter and anchor at WPDE-TV in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  Since that time she has established herself as an outstanding on-scene reporter covering such major stories as the Columbine High School shootings, the crash of Flight 93 in Somerset County, Pennsylvania on September 11th and the Quecreek Mine Disaster.   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.

Brown is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists. While in Pittsburgh, she received an African American Heritage Award as “Best Reporter” from WAMO Radio, the award’s sponsor.  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. Komen for the Cure, hosting the organization’s annual “Sisters for the Cure” workshop for African-American women.

A native of Virginia, Brown is a graduate of James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications.
