Judge Joe Brown

Vibe – Weekdays from 21 July, 11.40am

Move over Judge Judy! Meet Judge Joe Brown, the non-traditional, no-nonsense, no-holds-barred presiding judge of VIBE’s new reality courtroom show.Having grown up in one of the toughest neighbourhoods in South Central L.A., Judge Brown formed his tough love philosophy early on. He served as a judge in Memphis, Tennessee, from 1990 to 2000, where he introduced a new way of sentencing first time, non-violent offenders with riveting results. Judge Brown sees his work on television as a great way to spread the word and make a difference – see him in action weekdays on VIBE, just after Judge Judy.
