We are remembering a longtime advocate in the journalism world. KSTP Photojournalist Russ Brown died after a courageous battle with cancer.

Russ started at KSTP-TV in 1972 and worked here until his retirement in May.

Even after covering countless stories Russ never lost his passion for the job.

"He had such a big heart, a huge heart. He was always one of the first ones here and the last ones to leave. He loved the TV news business," said Joe Caffrey, KSTP-TV chief photographer.

Russ covered everything from Watergate to the collapse of the 35W Bridge. He’s been a great teacher and inspiration to other photographers and reporters in the business.

His legacy will live on in our newsroom and other newsrooms across the Twin Cities.
