Joel Brown, CBS Newspath Correspondent

Nov 30, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Background: Mr. Brown got his professional start early.

TV News Talent

While a student at Howard University, he was an anchor-reporter at Howard’s WHUT-TV. In 2000, he received the Radio-Television News Directors Association’s Ed Bradley Award for Excellence in Student Journalism. After a short stint as a researcher and assistant at ABC News’ “20/20” and “Primetime,” he headed for KETK-TV in Tyler, Texas, where he produced the late-night weekend newscasts, and later reported and co-anchored the evening newscast. Three years later, he was hired as a reporter for high-energy WSVN-TV in Miami. During his three years there, his big stories included the Terri Schiavo right-to-die case and the historically busy 2005 hurricane season. CBS Newspath hired him a year ago and based him in Washington, D.C.

Buzz: His has been a fast TV trajectory that has had him covering the presidential transition and is about to find CBS News making more use of him. Mr. Brown’s got the attitude, work ethic and skills for so much more. Ask anyone who’s seen his work on the pre-dawn “CBS Morning News.”

  1. I hope he man up

  2. Great piece. Joel presents as an intelligent, calm, cool and knowledgeable journalist. He’s a rising star and a great male role model for young men around the country. We are all very proud of his accomplishments personally and professionally. Keep up the good work, Joel.

  3. I worked with Joel at KETK. CBS is very fortunate to have snagged him. A number one guy and an ace reporter.

  4. I have watched Joel Brown on channel 9 and I think he is doing a fantastic job. He always appears sharp, well dressed and knowledgable in his reporting.
    We are very proud to know, love and respect him
    as he climbs the ladder to become a great journalist.

  5. We are so proud!

  6. I have watched Joel metamorphosis into a reputable young professional.It’s a pleasure to watch him exemplify those sundry qualities that he possesses. May God continue to keep him!

  7. Joel is really on top of his game. It’s really nice to see a sharp, bright, and younger face in the major network news circut. But I have a question, and it’s killing me. Is he related to Bobby Brown in any way? OMG Joel looks like the well/mild mannered..educated..handsome..clean cut..positive..brother of the singer Bobby Brown or a close relative. I mean..really, look at an old picture of Bobby Brown, it has to be an old picture because thats when he used to look good, and then look at Joel as he is doing the news. OMG!!! They look a like to me! Please reply, anyone?

  8. I just saw Joel doing a great piece on the news and remembered that he worked here in Tyler, Texas. I am so incredibly proud of him. He is a gleaming example of “hard work” paying off. It makes me feel really good to see an individual climb the ladder of success. I know and realize that getting to such a pinnacle in his career couldn’t have been very easy. Therefore, I salute you JOEL BROWN for being the great professional you are in the journalism arena! May God continue to keep you and catapult you to even greater things to come!

  9. You don’t know this man ’til you’ve had to share a desk near him in the newsroom. All I can say is ‘JB, S the F~Up!’
    Miss ya”)
    I live in the Azalea,
    Can I tell ya’?
    I like the money, the OPP…oh baby! Come to BigA N C ME!

  10. IMO, CBS would do themselves a huge favor ratings-wise if they gave Joel Brown an anchor spot. Aside from practicing what they preach regarding diversity, he’s got a compelling voice that I believe would draw viewers.
    Listen to an audio of him and compare it to the premier audiobook reader of all time, the late Frank Muller. (Literally millions of audio books were sold due to the unique quality of his voice) The first time I heard Joel Brown speak, I dropped what I was doing and ran to see if it was Frank Muller on TV!
    Joel has good credentials, he’s a personable young black man and I’d tune into CBS news on a more regular basis just to listen to him speak. He’d be a great replacement for Couric, whose voice is a total downer. I click her out whenever I hear her voice.

  11. dear mr brown
    I have spent weeks and long nights, emailing and faxing every branch of the US Government possible, senators, Charlie Melancon [5 fax #], Bernie Sanders [2 fax #], Nick Rahall, congressmen, Steve Poizner, the White House staff, President Obama [6 emails and 5 faxes], First Lady [2 faxes and 2 emails], the Coast Guard head Thad Allen and 2nd in command [2 faxes and 4 emails], CNN’s Anderson Cooper, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, BP, TV stations in general, the NY Times, Maureen Dowd, Tavis Smiley, Oprah Winfrey, Huffington Post, Rick Steiner … Not one reply!
    NASA uses a Cold Welding product for the Space Shuttle tiles, that I believe, if pumped into the gusher holes HUNDREDS OF GALLONS AT A TIME, would seal them completely. It can be used very easily UNDERWATER for repairs of any kind with boats, pool cracks, tank cracks, radiator leaks, anywhere wet or dry. It works under 2500psi, the oil well holes are pumping out at 2000psi, so there is an extra 500psi in the product’s favour.
    I have used this product before and as a marine pilot for 29 years, called Velodur, or Durmetal.
    If it works for NASA, why not negligent BP?
    IF they cut pipes that will only be worse, more stupidity like the mud and concrete. Do they have any idea how many hours it takes concrete to cure? Cut pipes will all leak together and cause a massive blow-out hole from below. The pressure will be spread out over a larger ‘holes’ area and breech with a bigger uumph, for lack of a better word.

    VELODUR®/DURMETAL® Coldwelding System is as fast as it is versatile. By mixing Base and Activator on a simple 1:1 ratio by volume, a molecular reaction starts and depending on the type used, the repair is completed in 3-4 minutes or 3-4 hours.

  12. This unique short review tends to make it’s exasperation manifest. This brief review careens simply straight to pet peeves that contain not one thing to do with the content, centering alternatively on generalizations on the subject of adult females, races, bicyclists, and in addition an race talked about that have an adjective practiced as a noun. A particular coded hateful comment is included, followed as soon as possible by allegations of a “race card” appearing played.

  20. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  47. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
