Joel Brown
Joel Brown anchors the 4 p.m. evening edition of Eyewitness News. You'll also see his live reports from around the Triangle at 11 p.m.

Before joining The Eyewitness News Team, Joel was the Washington-based correspondent for CBS NewsPath, the network's affiliate service.

He spent nearly 4 years covering politics from The White House and Capitol Hill. He also traveled the country following national news stories, including weeks on the road covering the historic 2008 presidential election. And Joel was there live at Kennedy Space Center reporting on the final launch of NASA's space shuttle program.

Joel spent 3 years in South Florida, as a reporter and fill-in anchor for WSVN, Miami's innovative Fox affiliate. His "break-out" story came in 2005, covering the minute-by-minute details of the Terri Schiavo "right to die" case. He also got the chance to cover his share of tropical weather, including the '05 Hurricane season, which was the busiest on record.

Before Miami, Joel began his career in television news at KETK, the NBC affiliate in Tyler, TX. When he left east Texas, he was the station's 5:00 anchor and education beat reporter.

Joel was born and raised in suburban Philadelphia, where his mom and dad still live. But he also has roots here in North Carolina. Joel's father was born and raised in Fayetteville. And he has a whole host of aunts, uncles, and cousins in the area.
