Dwane Brown is a multimedia news professional and one of the first broadcasters to provide video interviews on the Web back in 1999. Working as a business correspondent and news anchor, he interviewed hundreds of chief executives at investment and Internet conferences across the country, reporting on the dotcom boom and bust in 2001.

Brown started his career with KPBS in the early '90s as a radio anchor and reporter. During his absence from San Diego, Brown furthered his broadcast news experience at CBS radio and television in New York. He’s also been a news director, anchor, reporter and correspondent in San Francisco. He has worked as a writer, producer, assignment editor and talk show host. He returned to KPBS in 2005.

In his role at KPBS, Brown writes, produces and edits a daily news story for TV, radio, and the Web. He anchors KPBS Evening Edition, providing an in-depth look at issues and stories relevant to San Diego. He spent nearly seven years as anchor/host of Morning Edition on KPBS Radio.

For five years in a row, between 2006 and 2010, the San Diego Press Club named Brown "Best Morning Newscaster" in San Diego Radio. In 2006, the Society of Professional Journalists also named him "Best Morning Newscaster." During that time he managed and taught a two-week high school boot camp for aspiring radio reporters at KPBS in conjunction with the California Chicano News Media Association.

Brown studied English/Journalism at San Diego State University and is a Fast Trac graduate from UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business.

He’s a popular public speaker and Toastmaster International member.
