Commented BROWN: “TIMES-SHAMROCK COMMUNICATIONS is the best company that I have ever worked with. I can’t say enough about the support of our owners, the LYNETT and HAGGERTY families and I’m excited about leading our RENO stations to new levels of success.”
BROWN began her career at CBS affiliate KPAX-TV in MISSOULA, MONTANA, following her 1995 graduation from UNIVERSITY OF MONTANA, where she earned a B.A. degree in Journalism.
The MONTANA native has two children and resides in the RENO area.
