“He had such a big heart, a huge heart,” Joe Caffrey, KSTP chief photographer said on the station’s website. “He was always one of the first ones here and the last ones to leave. He loved the TV news business.”
Brown was remembered by current and former co-workers across the country, including Gus Rosendale, reporter and anchor at WNBC in New York.
