My name is Doug Brown and I’m a journalist who can dig deep and get information. Investigative work — getting public records and developing sources to uncover important stories — is my passion.
As of November, 2012, I am working for Deadspin.com, investigating stories about college sports.
I am finishing graduate journalism school at the Kent State School of Journalism & Mass Communication, where I am on the reporting and editing track, focusing on convergence media. I am done with coursework and am just finishing my final project before I will have my M.A.. I graduated with a B.A. in political science from Hiram College in May 2010.
I was an award-winning enterprise reporter for the Daily Kent Stater and spent last summer working for the Cleveland Plain Dealer. For more details of my work and education history, click here.
