Brad Edwards -- Promoted to Main Anchor
Main Anchor/Investigative Reporter
When I was fortunate enough to see just one story from Brad Edwards, I knew he was someone that was uniquely talented. He has the gift! He is a creative wordsmith, a captivating television presence and a compulsive digger.
Upon his arrival at CBS Chicago in 2012, Brad immediately became the lead 10 pm reporter. Soon after, he was given his own franchise. He’s now part of the much-lauded CBS 2 Investigative Unit. In March of 2019, he added Main Anchor to his title — co-anchoring the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. weekday newscasts.
His 90+ awards include seven Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards and eight consecutive Regional Emmy Awards for News Writing [2003-10].
Brad was also selected by his colleagues to serve at the SAG-AFTRA Steward representing talent at CBS Chicago, he’s also served as an Adjunct Professor at Columbia College of Chicago.
