In many ways, one could say Brown turned in her M-16 for a microphone and in doing so, accepted a different kind of responsibility. 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.
Brown joined the military and spent two years as a military broadcaster, reporting for American Forces Network from Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan. She later returned to the United States and moved to Kelly Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, to join Air Force Television News as an anchor and reporter.
Following her time at Air Force Television News, Brown moved to El Paso, Texas, to join KTSM, the NBC affiliate, where she spent two years as an anchor and reporter. 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.
