 Tony Brown Biography

Tony Brown is Chief Executive Officer of Urban America Television Network (UATV) which has about 30 million viewers. In 2002, Brown also became the first recipient of the National Director’s Legacy Award for Journalism from the U. S. Department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA).

Within weeks of that honor, this widely recognized out-of-the-box thinker was inducted into the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’s prestigious Silver Circle. With this honor, he joins such television icons as Walter Cronkite who “have made enduring contributions to the vitality of the television industry and set the highest standards of achievement for all to emulate.”

Tony Brown has been an innovator in many areas. He was the first and founding dean, as well as professor, of the School of Communications at Howard University, where he established a highly distinguished academic and professional record. Tony Brown has distinguished himself as a producer writer, educator, television commentator and film director.

This television commentator and self-empowerment advocate’s life embodies the American dream. In his powerful and highly personal upcoming April, 2003 book, What Mama Taught Me, he describes the seven core values, given to him by his Mama, that have sustained his life and given it meaning. In other words, he writes, “Mama,” a maid and dishwasher in Charleston, West Virginia, gave him health, wealth and happiness.

Also written with Brown’s signature strength and vitality, are two powerful books, Black Lies, White Lies: The Truth According To Tony Brown which sold 100,000 copies, and Empower The People. Brown is an active advocate of market solutions to social problems.

But it is for his work as a journalist that he is best known. He is the commentator of the PBS series Tony Brown’s Journal, the longest-running of all PBS series. Brown’s weekly television series was selected in the New York Daily News as one of the top 10 television shows of all time that presents positive Black images. Tony Brown’s Journal was the only current program ranked in the top 10. The TV series was also nominated for the l991 NAACP Image Award for “Outstanding News, Talk or Information Series/Special.” Adding to Brown’s many exploits as a media expert, Tony Brown Chicago can be heard on WLS (890 AM), the Chicago ABC Radio Networks affiliate and Disney ABC-owned station. He was selected by Talkers, the prestigious radio trade magazine, as one of “the 100 most important radio talk show hosts in America.”

Called “Television’s Civil Rights Crusader” in a cover story by Black Enterprise magazine, this educator and lecturer coordinated a march in Detroit that featured Martin Luther King, Jr. and drew an estimated 500,000, perhaps the largest civil rights march in America. It is also believed to be the first time Dr. King delivered his famous “I Have A Dream” speech. USA Today recently selected him as one of the top five leaders to analyze the status of Black America.

The Sales and Marketing Executives International Academy of Achievement awarded him the Ambassador of Free Enterprise Award because of his “interest in creating jobs and business through the Buy Freedom Network.” Previous Academy inductees include: Henry Block of H & R Block and J.C. Penney of J.C. Penney Company. He is the recipient the 1995 Educator of the Year Award and previously received the Communicator of the Year Award from the Academy’s national board of trustees. Previous winners of this prestigious award include the heads of TBS, CBS, ABC, CNN and several of the major newspaper chains and national publications. He is the first Black to receive either honor. The Institute For American Business recently recognized Brown’s work in economic and community development with its 1993 Community Service Award. He received The Economic Empowerment Award from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (S.C.L.C.)
