DeviBrown-About

Devi Brown is a communicator on a mission to connect people with the worlds inside, and outside, of themselves. She has spent more than a decade hosting radio and television shows from coast-to-coast. Today, through radio, TV and podcasting, as well as workshops, speaking and her company, Karma Bliss, Devi is connecting hungry, young people with spiritualism that’s relevant and beneficial to their lives.

Devi most recently held the position of Music Director and #1 rated host for iHeartMedia’s, 93.7 The Beat, while also hosting entertainment segments for CBS television affiliate, KHOU11. Devi’s career has taken her to NYC, where she hosted MTV’s talk show, Hip Hop POV, and helped launch SiriusXM’s Sway in the Morning show, as co-host alongside hip hop and cultural legend, Sway Calloway. Before that, Devi was a host on the RadioOne station, 97.9 The Box, where her viral interview with Kanye West landed her on Good Morning America and The Today Show. Though her career has taken her across the country, Devi’s heart will always be in her hometown of Los Angeles, California where she started her career at 93.5 KDAY, rising in the ranks from enthusiastic intern to Music Director and On-air personality.

From the start, Devi had an ear for unique talent and deeper meanings. With a mixture of gut instinct, genuine curiosity, integrity and gratitude, Devi brought her listeners exciting new artists alongside insightful interviews with some of the biggest names in music. Over years of conversations with greats like Kendrick Lamar, Quincy Jones, Nicki Minaj, Common, and Kanye West, Devi strengthened two beliefs that drive her career today – that greatness comes from a fearless expression of the self and that she wanted to help people connect with that inner-self.

Off the air, Devi gets to hang with her two favorite guys – her multi-talented husband, Duane Brown, and her energetic pup, Legend. Duane is an award winning NFL offensive lineman, and Legend is the reigning tug-o-war champion of the Brown’s backyard. Whenever time allows, Devi quenches her thirst for adventure by traveling to foreign countries to experience new cultures. She also loves riding her bike, binge listening to podcasts and practicing daily meditation.
