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.

Governor Sam Brownback signed the school finance bill that takes care of the financial obligation to state schools, but has a controversial portion dealing with teachers and due process.

Will this hurt the governor in the upcoming election?

Governor Brownback has signed the health care compact bill. The law would give the sate control over federal health care programs, but must be approved by congress.

We will have this and a lot more on the next This Week in Kansas.
