Lori Brown, currently a general assignment and investigative reporter for WFTV in Orlando, will join the KDFW/Channel 4 reporting staff June 15.
Brown will be a general assignment reporter, contributing to various Fox 4 newscasts.
She has also had investigative reporter positions with WMC in Memphis; KCOY/KKFX in San Luis Obispo, Calif.; Torrence CitiCable in Torrence, Calif.; and Annenberg TV News in Los Angeles. Brown got her start as an intern for CNN.
Brown grew up in Austin, where, she says on her WFTV bio, she discovered her calling for news at age 15. She has a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism and political science from the University of Southern California. “There, I met my best friend, husband, and news ally, Matt Brown,” she says in the self-written bio. She has been in Orlando since 2011.
"I’m thrilled for the opportunity to return to my home state and be part of the unofficial fourth branch of government,” she says in a Fox news release. “I look forward to joining the great team of reporters at Fox 4, and eating some good Texas-style barbecue." (Hmm. We have a suggestion. Or two. Or three. All we’re saying, Ms. Brown, is make sure you get west of Dallas, not to take anything away from Pecan Lodge, Lockhart Smokehouse or numerous other places.)
Here’s a sample of Brown’s WFTV work:
