Justin Brown, Sports Designer

Hello, my name is Justin Brown. I am a non-traditional student in my first year with the Daily Eastern News. This year I will be the sports page designer, occasional photographer and I also hope to write.

I recently obtained my associates degree in Journalism at Illinois Central College in East Peoria. Before ICC, I spent close to nine years behind the wheel of an 18-wheeler enjoying the United States one mile at a time.

Married with three children, I will be keeping myself as busy as possible in an effort to hurry the trips home to my family every other weekend.

I encourage students to find something it is that they enjoy and dive-in, headfirst, and learn as much as possible while also enjoying your time at Eastern and in Charleston. Best of Luck this year and thanks for reading the Daily Eastern News.
