WTVD’s Joel Brown is an anchor on the weekend evening editions of Eyewitness News. He gives out live reports around the Triangle in North Carolina during the week. The reporter started his career in television news from the NBC affiliate, KETK in Tyler, TX. He was co-anchor of the station’s 5:00 p.m. newscasts. Alongside TV, Joel also focused on the education beat. He even received the 2004 Outstanding Education News Series Award by the Texas State Teachers Association.
He had also produced and anchored the KETK’s 10:00 p.m. weekend newscast. The anchor then headed to South Florida as a reporter and fill-anchor for WSVN, where he contributed for three years. It was in 2005 when his ‘break-out’ story arrived as he covered the minute-by-minute details of the Terri Schiavo ‘right to die’ case. He also grabbed the chance to cover tropical weather that included the ‘05 Hurricane season.

After that, he spent almost four years covering politics from Capitol Hill and The White House. Joel traveled around the country and followed up with national news stories. Those stories demanded weeks on the road, as he covered the historic 2008 presidential election. He was also present at Kennedy Space Center where he reported on NASA’s space shuttle program’s final launch. The reporter eventually joined CBS Newspath as the Washington-based correspondent. From his job at the WTVD, Joel earns an average salary of $111,717, so it’s safe to say that he carries a net worth of millions.
Joel Brown Married-To-Wife?
As much as Joel’s bio screams out his successful career, it is the exact opposite when it comes to his married status. He has never said anything that could spark rumors concerning his possible wife.
In fact, he has not even been linked romantically to anyone. This makes it safe to say that he is enjoying his single life, or maybe he is just too good at hiding his family with his mystery wife.
Talking about his family, Joel is more than open to share the moments he spends with his root family. He often shows them off in his social media sites; whether it is wishing his nephew a happy birthday or wishing his mom on mother’s day, Joel has everything on show.

And on Veteran’s Day, he posted an old picture via Instagram (November 20180 of his veteran grandfather and poured his respect in the caption for him. The caption read:
Before becoming a step-father to my mother and long before he was my grandmother, Lawrence Butler was a U.S. Army paratrooper in a newly-desegregated American military fighting the Korean War. Happy Veteran’s Day, Pop-Pop! We salute you!
The respect and admiration came spilling out in the captions, and Joel was not hesitant to show it to everyone.
