According to KVOA Tuscan in Arizona, Aaron Brown will make a permanent switch from the anchor desk to the head of the class in January.
Brown, 58, has accepted a teaching position at Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication which has been counted among the nation's top journalism schools.
Although Brown, a Hopkins, Minnesota native, lacks a college education and has little academic experience, he covered some of the country's and world's biggest stories in his 15 years at ABC and CNN.
"I've been in a lot of places and there aren't many major stories in the last 15 years that I didn't have a piece of," he said.
In the spring, Brown taught a seminar on the history of broadcast journalism at the university's Barrett Honors College, and in January, he will begin at the Cronkite school full-time.
"I'm really aware of what I lack. The journalism part I got, I know how to do that, but I need some help acclimating to the academic life," Brown said from his home in New York City. "I'm thinking of buying a corduroy sport coat with patches and a pipe, and see if I can become more academically oriented."
Brown, who with his wife is building a home in Scottsdale, said he knows he still has a lot to learn about teaching, but that he's got "street cred."
