One of the most recognizable broadcasters in the country stopped by the University of Southern Mississippi on Monday. James Brown, the 12-year co-host of "NFL on Fox" and the current host of "NFL Today on CBS" since 2006, spoke to a crowded Bennett Auditorium on the Southern Miss campus as part of a Black History Month event.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes Area Director and former WDAM-TV Sports Director Mitch Williams conducted the interview with Brown, who shared his life story and the story of his faith, his family, and how both played a big role in where he is today.
"I've had so many people in my past who were willing to be open and honest with me about what was necessary steps to take in order to get where I am," said Brown afterward, "I want to make certain I'm giving back in that same fashion, and I hope that my life has been an example.
"I don't want to be one who says one thing and contradicts that with my actions. I pray they're one and the same."
Brown has roots in the Pine Belt. His mother was a native of the Hub City, and a number of relatives ran business in Hattiesburg as well. WDAM will have more on Brown and his visit on Tuesday.
