Brewer joined MSNBC in September 2003, after working for WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee, Wisconsin as a weekend anchor and general assignment reporter. She has also worked for KMIR-TV in Palm Springs, California from 1997 to 1999, and KRNV-TV in Reno, Nevada. KMIR and WTMJ-TV are both owned by Journal Communications. In spring 2005, Brewer served briefly as a news reader on the Imus in the Morning radio show, which was syndicated nationally. Her tenure was brief; she became embroiled in a public feud with Don Imus after the New York Post published a gossip item in which she was allegedly overheard disparaging the radio personality. Imus replied, on air, with his own disparaging remarks directed at Brewer. She later appeared as the news reader on Verdict with Dan Abrams before its cancellation in 2008. She and Dan Abrams would discuss the “Winners and Losers” of the day, as well as reading responses from readers. She hosted MSNBC Live weekdays at noon, until her departure on August 26, 2011. In January 2010, New Hampshire Senator Judd Gregg, a guest on It's the Economy, hosted by Brewer and Melissa Francis, called for cuts in the federal budget. When Gregg failed to respond to Francis' questions concerning the specific cuts he supported, Brewer pressed him, asking “Which programs are you willing to cut? Are you willing to tell schools, no money for you?” Gregg reacted by saying Brewer was “absurd”, “fundamentally dishonest”, “irresponsible” and lacked “integrity” for her handling of interviews, and stated “in your introduction to me, you said that, that education funding would be cut.” In August 2009, Brewer was criticized by conservative blogs for a story about a man carrying an AR-15 assault rifle at an Obama appearance in Phoenix, Arizona, on August 17. MSNBC was accused of editing the video to conceal the race of the man, who was black, and Brewer commented “you have a man of color in the presidency and white people showing up with guns strapped to their waists or to their legs.” In May 2010, Brewer received criticism for her comments about the Times Square car bomb attempt:
On July 20, 2011, while interviewing Representative Mo Brooks (R-AL) on MSNBC regarding the debt crisis, Brewer asserted: “We were looking at going ... reverting a depression at that point.” When Brooks said he disagreed, Brewer challenged, “Do you have a degree in economics?” Brooks replied “Yes ma'am, I do. Highest honors.” According to his Congressional web site, “Mo graduated from Duke University in three years with a double major in political science and economics, with highest honors in economics. In 1978, he graduated from the University of Alabama Law School.” After the interview, Brewer commented on her Facebook page that she “just learned why lawyers are told never to ask a question they don't know the answer to.” On August 26, 2011, Brewer announced at the conclusion of her regular anchoring hour on MSNBC that she would no longer be serving as an anchor for the network. Brewer stated that she would continue hosting Caught on Camera and filing reports for NBC news but that she would be pursuing other opportunities in the future. In March 2012, Brewer began doing fill-in anchor work for WNBC in New York City, mostly on weekends.
