Tim Brown has worked in television for the past 21 years.  During that time, Tim has won numerous awards for journalistic excellence. 

Tim started as an intern at Oklahoma City television station KOCO where he helped break a story that received national attention and recognition from Oklahoma Governor Henry Bellmon. 


The story uncovered ties between the Church of Scientology and Narcanon, a drug treatment center opened on Indian land in Oklahoma.  State officials didn’t know of the link before granting permission for the treatment facility to open. 

From KOCO, Tim traveled to Lawton, Oklahoma to work as a reporter/anchor at KSWO.  After a brief stint at KSWO, Tim was hired at KWWL in Waterloo, Iowa to be the bureau chief for KWWL in the largest city in the market in Cedar Rapids.

Tim was then hired in Wichita, first at KSN, and then KWCH where he was nominated for multiple Emmy awards and received several awards for news coverage.

Tim left the commercial television business in 2000 to work in the non-profit world.  In 2004, Tim helped produce, shoot, edit and co-host “Minding Your Own Business; the Kansas Entrepreneur.”  Since 2006, Tim has produced and hosted "Kansas Week" at KPTS.

Election day for the primary races is Tuesday and candidates have been busy.

A lot of money has been spent and candidates have knocked on a lot of doors.

We will have the latest.

July revenues are up for th state of Kansas. In fact, we are a bit above projections. Will that break the cycle of the negative economic news in the past few months?

And Kansas kids rank 15th in the kids count data book.

That seems to be pretty positive for the state and is good news for the Governor.

This and a lot more on the next This Week in Kansas.
