Max Darrow – Bridging Brotherhood and Broadcast Excellence

Max Darrow, Syracuse ’16, has seamlessly woven together the values of brotherhood and professional success throughout his life. Darrow’s path began at Syracuse University, where he became a member of the New Jersey Epsilon Chapter of Phi Delta Theta. Embracing the Fraternity’s core principles of Friendship, Sound Learning, and Rectitude, Darrow found a supportive community that would shape his personal and professional development.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in broadcast and digital journalism from Syracuse’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in 2016, Darrow embarked on a remarkable career in the field of journalism. Currently serving as a TV news anchor and reporter at KPIX-TV, the CBS television station in San Francisco, Darrow’s career has taken him across the country, covering a diverse range of stories.

Darrow’s professional journey is characterized by a dedication to storytelling. From reporting on natural disasters like hurricanes to covering significant events such as the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the 2022 NBA Finals, Darrow has demonstrated his ability to deliver impactful and insightful journalism in the face of challenging circumstances.

His contributions have not gone unnoticed. Darrow’s reporting has earned him a regional Emmy Award and six regional Emmy nominations, underscoring his talent and commitment to journalistic excellence. Most recently, Darrow was awarded two first-place awards from the San Francisco Press Club.

Beyond his professional achievements, Darrow remains connected to Phi Delta Theta. The bonds built during his time in the Fraternity continue to shape his life, serving as a source of inspiration and support as he navigates his career. For Darrow, being a member of Phi Delta Theta is not just about the experiences shared during his college years but also about upholding the values of brotherhood throughout his life.

As Darrow continues to excel in his career and uphold the values instilled in him by Phi Delta Theta, he serves as an inspiring example for future generations of Fraternity brothers and aspiring journalists alike.
