Anchors & Reporters
Pamela Brown

Pamela Brown serves as a CNN Justice correspondent covering crime and justice issues, including law enforcement and the Supreme Court. Since joining the network in 2013, she has reported on several breaking news stories, including the Boston marathon terrorist attacks, the Cleveland kidnappings and the devastation surrounding the Oklahoma tornadoes. Brown is based in the network's Washington bureau.

Previously, Brown was a national correspondent for the network and contributed to CNN's New Day. She began her career at ABC7/WJLA-TV and NewsChannel8 in Washington D.C., where she became a Sunday evening anchor and an Emmy-nominated special projects reporter covering several national and international stories. At the news desk, Brown anchored breaking news and continuous coverage on several high profile events, including Hurricane Sandy, a Washington metro train derailment and the historic 2010 Blizzard. In addition, Brown was one of the few local journalists to travel to earthquake-ravaged Haiti in January 2010 and later returned on her own to report on the rebuilding process in Port-au-Prince and the surrounding areas.

Brown is also committed in the fight against human sex trafficking and has generated several reports on the widespread problem in the U.S. and abroad, and local police are now presenting her exclusive investigative reports at human trafficking conferences and schools to help educate students, teachers and the community on the crisis. Federal authorities also credit one of Brown's reports with leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspected child pornographer.

She grew up in Lexington, Ky. and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in broadcast journalism. As a student, she reported for the university's Carolina Week.
