Hi, I’m Devi Brown! I am a communicator on a mission to connect people with the worlds inside, and outside, of themselves. I have 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 my company, Karma Bliss, I attempt to connect hungry, young people with spiritualism that’s relevant and beneficial to their lives. I am currently partnered with Nordstrom; they’re carrying my Karma Bliss crystal collection as part of their Well Beauty Collection. I’m honored to be a part of this timeless department store and to have my Karma Bliss crystals create a larger impact.

I 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. My career has taken me to NYC, where I 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, I was a host on the RadioOne station, 97.9 The Box, where my viral interview with Kanye West landed me on Good Morning America and The Today Show. Though my career has taken me across the country, my heart will always be in my hometown of Los Angeles, California where I started my career at 93.5 KDAY, rising in the ranks from enthusiastic intern to Music Director and On-air personality.

From the start, I had an ear for unique talent and deeper meanings. With a mixture of gut instinct, genuine curiosity, integrity and gratitude, I brought my 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, I strengthened two beliefs that drive my career today – that greatness comes from a fearless expression of the self and that I wanted to help people connect with that inner-self.

Off the air, I founded Karma Bliss -a company dedicated to self- discovery-, authored bestselling book Crystal Bliss, and became a Deepak Chopra certified instructor of Primordial Sound Meditation.

When not working, I get to hang with my 3 favorite guys – my multi-talented husband, Duane Brown, and my energetic doggies, Legend and Ali. Duane is an award winning NFL offensive lineman for the Seattle Seahawks, and the doggies are the reigning tug-o-war champions of our backyard.

Now's your chance to ask me anything! Please write your questions in the comments section below and I'll answer the questions live on Tuesday, March 6th at 2pm ET.

      Hey Bethany! In this day and age especially its so important to be creating your own content before you get a radio gig. From podcasting to blogging...put yourself and your thoughts out there! Aside from showing radio companies that you are a self starter and able to wear multiple hats (which is crazy important in the radio industry) it also gives you practice in sharing your personality and using your voice. When I got started many moons ago I was able to get an internship and learn in studio. That template is becoming very rare in radio now so it's important that you practice projecting your voice and utilizing word economy as much as possible. When Ive had interns in the past I would tell them to turn on the radio in multiple genre's every chance they got and study the talk breaks they heard. How long did they last? How many thoughts were expressed? Was it engaging? what would you do differently? Then practice by re creating what you heard. The MOST important thing in radio in knowing how to do a talk break that is up to industry standards. The best way to learn how to do that is by studying the greats which is as easy as turning on your radio!

      Hi Feven! Awesome name btw. Hmmmm great question! That's so tough because everyone is so different at at different places is their career and personal processes. Something I seem to take away very often is how important it is to put yourself out there. Every successful celebrity I have ever interviewed always had this trait in common. They Tried, they often failed, learned, then got back up and did it all over again. Its beautiful! They all believe so strongly in their talent and in what they uniquely are meant to share with the world that hearing "No" or having a bad gig doesn't keep them down. They keep on creating and keep on putting who they are out there. It's very inspiring. Now especially so many are scared of being seen at their starting point. Everyone wants to have already arrived and have a well curated image. Not only is that not realistic, but that is not how life works in any area. The process is what creates true success. I'm sure you've heard this quote before but I absolutely love sharing it and it really fits this particular question... "An overnight success is 10 years in the making"

      Hi Danica! For me personally, Meditation was a game changer! After doing a lot of speaking on the subject this year I've come to learn that for many...being silent and still is extremely intimidating and even scary. Its so interesting how we can all devote so much time throughout the day to scrolling socials or getting caught up in random things but the thought of spending time with ourselves and being quiet is so frightening. Learning to love on yourself though silence and alone time is so POWERFUL and freeing. As women we often spend so much of our lives and who we are being of service in some capacity to other people. Learning how to say "no", reclaiming your time and sharing that time with YOU is one of the best ways to find peace and release stress. I truly believe meditation is a great way to start that journey for yourself. In primordial meditation (the kind I practice) it is suggested that you meditate 2x per day, 25 minutes each time. ALWAYS start in the morning before your day begins and then late afternoon (think right after work but before dinner). When your just getting started, 25minutes 2x a day sounds crazy lol. But if you can at least commit to spending 15 minutes in the morning in meditation you will absolutely experience great benefit. You do not need any tools or help to do this but if you are interested in guided meditations then a few apps I love are: "Ananda" and "simple habit"
