As a journalist, she is a witness to the events that shape people's lives. Brown's journey into television news began as a military broadcaster. She began her radio and television career after enlisting in the U.S. Air Force.

While at KTSM, she reported on military and justice affairs, as well anchoring daily newscasts. After two years in El Paso, Brown moved to Las Vegas, where she joined ABC affiliate KTNV.
She spent five years in Las Vegas, before joining NBC News and MSNBC as an anchor and correspondent.
Brown has received numerous awards, including an Emmy, a Texas Associated Press first place award for spot news coverage and the Air Force Commendation Medal.
