What can you tell me about Aaron Brown, and why he's no longer on CNN? We sure do miss him.
—A. Underman, Dublin, Calif.

Brown has covered many newsworthy events, including the O.J. Simpson trial, the Columbine High School shootings, the death of Princess Diana, the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the D.C. sniper, the Columbia space shuttle disaster and the tsunami in Southeast Asia. He was the founding anchor of ABC-TV's World News Now and reported with Peter Jennings for World News Tonight. He recently served in CNN's New York bureau as anchor for NewsNight With Aaron Brown and host of CNN Presents, but he left the network late last year for some much-deserved time off with his wife of 23 years and his teenage daughter. In his spare time, he loves to golf and cook.
