Sports Director Katy Brown Departs KATU

Katy Brown has departed KATU after seven years as the station’s sports director.

KATU news director Don Pratt confirmed Brown’s departure to TVSpy but would not give any details about what led to her exit.

Brown has been covering the Portland sports scene since 2000.  She was recently named Oregon Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.

Weekend sports anchor Craig Birnbach, who has been with KATU since 2007, has replaced Brown on the station’s evening newscasts this week.

The last big story Brown reported for KATU was the firing of Portland Trailblazers coach Nate McMillan
