My husband and I wonder what has become of CNN news anchor Aaron Brown. He came on after Larry King Live, and King would always say, "Here's my man, Aaron Brown."

In November 2005, CNN decided to expand Anderson Cooper 360 to two hours, but it came at the expense of NewsNight With Aaron Brown. Because the veteran journalist, best remembered for his insightful coverage of the attacks of 9/11, remained under contract, he was prevented from returning to television for more than a year. Brown, 60, recently concluded his second season as anchor of the PBS documentary series Wide Angle, and he serves as the Walter Cronkite Professor of Journalism at Arizona State University in Tempe.
