Pete Brown

Senior Research Fellow

Pete Brown is a senior research fellow at the Tow Center. He is also co-founder of Eyewitness Media Hub. Pete holds a PhD from Cardiff University’s School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies. After completing his thesis, Pete worked on a Tow Center project examining eight 24-hour TV news providers’ use of eyewitness media. He subsequently designed and led two major follow-up projects for Eyewitness Media Hub. The first involved a content analysis analysis of over 27,000 articles from eight online news websites, and interviews with eyewitnesses whose content had been used in news output. The second, published in collaboration with the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, University of Oxford, was a study of news audiences’ attitudes towards eyewitness media, for which he conducted 10 focus groups in various locations around the UK.
