James Brown: My First Big Break

mediabistrotv_1

Early in his career, CBS Sports NFL studio host James Brown worked at Washington, D.C. CBS affiliate WUSA when it was known as WDVM. Brown credits the producers there with making him a broadcaster.

The hard working TV host was just starting his day as fill-in anchor of the CBS Evening News when he told MediabistroTV about an early failure in his life that eventually created his success. Watch his story to hear why.

Even with the occasional on-air fumble along the way, Brown told us, “I still work just as hard now, if not harder, as I did back then getting started.”

Beginning tomorrow, Brown adds hosting NFL Thursday Night Kickoff to his CBS schedule.

John Harding Leaving KKTV for Real Estate Business

harding_kktvJohn Harding, co-anchor of the KKTV morning news, is leaving the Colorado Springs CBS affiliate to concentrate on his real estate business.

This is the second time Harding has left the station. He worked at the station from 1997 until 1999 before leaving to work as an anchor/reporter at KTHV in Little Rock, AR, and then WTSP in Tampa, FL. He returned as a morning anchor in 2007 and currently co-anchors with Stacia Naquin.

KKTV general manager Nick Matesi told The Gazette the station won’t rush to hire  a replacement, “We’re going to take our time to make sure we get the right person to fit in with Stacia, meteorologist Branden Borremans, traffic reporter James Brown and the rest of the crew.”

Rival Stations Staff KFDM During Bill Leger’s Memorial Service

Two rival stations are pitching in today at KFDM in Beaumont so anchors and staffers can attend the memorial of anchor Bill Leger, who was killed in a car accident last week.

ABC affiliate KBMT and Fox affiliate KBTV (a sister station to KFDM) both offered to help, according to a post on the station’s Facebook page from meteorologist James Brown on Thursday:

How wonderful is this? Channel 4 and 12 are covering for us so we can attend Bill’s memorial tomorrow. Fox 4 anchor Jessica Guidry will anchor the News at Noon show and Meteorologist Dana Melancon will cover the weather for me on KFDM. Thank you for doing this for Bill and for us.

KFDM executive producer Scott Lawrence told the Houston Press that KBMT offered to also provide coverage of any breaking news that occurs during the memorial service, which takes place today.
