Brad Edwards

Brad Edwards is a CBS 2 Investigator along with Pam Zekman and Dave Savini.

Edwards work has netted 70+ awards: including 20+ Regional Emmy Awards and 6 Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards.

His reporting has led to new policies, prosecutions; it has reunited families, and helped free a wrongfully convicted woman serving a 50 year prison sentence. While a reporter in Detroit, his year-long expose into the county morgue led to the burial of dozens of indigent souls, and the passage of legislation that fast-tracked a massive facility expansion.

A 2001 graduate of Michigan State University, Brad serves as an Adjunct Professor at Columbia College of Chicago and as CBS Chicago’s SAG-AFTRA steward. He resides in Chicago.
