Pamela Brown is an Emmy nominated Sunday evening anchor and special projects reporter with ABC7/WJLA-TV and NewsChannel 8 in Washington, D.C. She joined the team in August of 2006 and has covered several national and international stories.
In January 2010, Pamela was one of the few local journalists to travel to earthquake-ravaged Haiti. She later returned on her own to Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas to report on the rebuilding process.
Pamela is committed in the fight against human sex trafficking and has generated several reports on the widespread problem in the U.S. and abroad. Federal authorities credit one of Pamela's exclusive reports with helping to put a child pornographer behind bars. In a recent I-Team Investigation, Pamela exposed the emerging and alarming trend of Northern Virginia gangs turning to the juvenile sex trade as a new money making enterprise.
At the news desk, Pamela has anchored breaking news and continuous coverage of several high profile events, including Hurricane Sandy, a metro train derailment and the historic Blizzard of 2010.
Pamela bleeds both Wildcat and Carolina blue. She grew up in Lexington, Ky. and graduated from the University of North Carolina with a degree in broadcast journalism. While there she spent time shooting, editing and reporting for the university's Carolina Week.
Outside of work, Pamela enjoys hanging out with her little sis, Patricia, who she mentors through Big Brothers Big Sisters of America; working as a volunteer with the Hope for Henry Foundation to throw memorable parties for children battling cancer; and being an advocate for human trafficking issues within the community.
