Back to St. Louis

A former St. Louis Anchor is returning to his old station.

KTVI announced that John Brown is returning to the station where he had formally worked on the morning show. 

Brown left the station in 2011 to work at WOFL, the Fox station in Orlando. His new role with KTVI FOX 2 will be the News/Political Analyst/Contributor and Public Affairs correspondent. 

“We are thrilled to welcome John back to FOX 2,” said Spencer Koch, President/General Manager of KTVI/KPLR. “Since John left us in 2011, the station has added 31 hours of local news per week. As a result, we have a need for someone to sort out St. Louis issues. John’s skills serve that need. His past experience in hosting town hall meetings, working social media, and involvement in politics will be key parts of John’s service to the St. Louis viewer.

Prior to working at KTVI, Brown was the host of "The Daily Buzz," a nationally syndicated morning news-talk show based in Orlando.

"I am extremely excited to be moving back to St. Louis, especially to the station that I called home 5 years.  It will be great to work alongside so many long-time friends and new colleagues.  I look forward to get back to my local roots covering stories that are important to St. Louis and to be a part of this great station once again."

He starts back in St. Louis on July 5th.
