Longtime ABC News Journalist Bob Brown Enters TU's Communication Hall of Fame

On today's StudioTulsa, we look back on the award-winning career of TV journalist Bob Brown, who earned a BS at the University of Tulsa in 1968. Brown held radio and television positions in Tulsa, Houston, and Dallas before joining ABC News in New York in 1977. In 1980, he was assigned to the staff of a then-new program called 20/20, where he would remain for the next thirty years. At his retirement in 2009, Brown had been honored with six Emmy awards, the Investigative Reporters Award, and the prestigious Alfred I. DuPont Award for a story involving a wounded soldier and the Army surgeon who helped save his life. Moreover, several of Brown's human-interest features have been, over the years, converted into Hollywood screenplays. Tomorrow night (Thursday the 5th), Brown will be inducted into the University of Tulsa's Communication Hall of Fame. (More details are posted here.)
