He is also the Special Correpsondent for CBS' news division. He was also the former host of the FOX network's NFL pregame show, Fox NFL Sunday.

Early life[edit]

Born on February 25, 1951 in Washington, D.C. to John and Maryann Brown. Brown attended high school at DeMatha Catholic High School. Brown graduated from Harvard University with a degree in American Government. A standout on the basketball court, he received All-Ivy League honors in his last three seasons at Harvard University and captained the team in his senior year. His roommate at Harvard was the later Princeton University professor/philosopher/activist Cornel West.[1]

CBS[edit]

After failing to make a roster spot when he tried out for the NBA's Atlanta Hawks in the mid 1970s, Brown entered the corporate world, working for such companies as Xerox and Eastman Kodak. Brown went into sports broadcasting in 1984 when he was offered a job doing Washington Bullets television broadcasts. He later moved on to an anchor position at WDVM-TV (later WUSA) in Washington and to some work at CBS Sports. [2] Brown first joined CBS Sports in 1987 where he served as play-by-play announcer for the network's NFL and college basketball coverage, as well as reporter for the NBA Finals. He also was host of the afternoon show from the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France and the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. While at CBS he also was co-host of CBS Sports Saturday/Sunday, a weekend anthology series.

Brown was removed from college basketball coverage for CBS after a one year stint in 2007.

Brown also hosts the college basketball pregame, halftime and postgame in the CBS studios in New York City. Greg Gumbel is the main host but sometimes Brown fills in when Gumbel is on another assignment.
