Biography of Tiffany Cochran Edwards
Tiffany Cochran Edwards is a familiar face to Atlanta television viewers. For 10 years, from 1997 to 2007, Tiffany served as weekend morning anchor/reporter for WXIA-TV, Atlanta’s NBC affiliate. Before that Tiffany anchored the news in Florence/Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and Augusta, Georgia before coming to Atlanta.
A Los Angeles native, Tiffany attended Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, where she graduated with a B.A. degree in Broadcast Journalism in 1991.
After 17 celebrated years in TV news, Tiffany retired from the industry to focus her energy on raising money for the Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr. Brain Tumor Center at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The center is named for her father, the legendary attorney, who died of a brain tumor 13 years ago, in March of 2005. Since his death, Tiffany has dedicated her life to continuing her father’s legacy both in the law and in philanthropic efforts.
After leaving WXIA-TV, Tiffany served as Communications Director of the Atlanta office of The Cochran Firm, the national law firm founded by her father before his death. In 2016, She was promoted to National Brand Manager & Public Relations Director for all 22 regional offices. It is Tiffany’s responsibility to make sure The Cochran Firm brand stays relevant and maintains its stellar reputation. But Tiffany’s most important and rewarding responsibility is that of mother to Emerson Ambrose, her exceptional 10-year-old daughter.
Tiffany is married to entrepreneur Javarro Edwards and they reside in DeKalb County.
In her spare time, Tiffany enjoys traveling, shopping, reading, photography, spending time with Emerson, volunteering at Emerson’s school, and trying new restaurants and spas. She is a dedicated member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and champions any organization committed to empowering girls and young women.
Tiffany is also an active member of The Stone Mountain Chapter of Jack & Jill of America, Inc. and an involved volunteer with The Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta serving as Cookie Manager for her daughter’s troop for the past five years.
Tiffany is currently working on a series of children’s books celebrating the special bond between father and daughter just like the one she shared with her father and now sees first hand between her own daughter and her husband.
She is thrilled and excited to be honored here tonight.
