Doug Dunbar

Doug is co-anchor of CBS 11 News at 5, 6 and 10 p.m. He is a multiple Emmy-award winning anchor and reporter, and was most recently honored with a 2014 Regional Edward R. Murrow award, for his outstanding writing and reporting, on a group of North Texas D Day veterans, and their emotional journey back to Normandy, France.

Since arriving in 2004, Doug has covered it all here in North Texas, and beyond. When the story breaks, he’s often on the road, reporting for us from where the news is happening. It’s where he most loves to be.

He’s an accomplished pilot, holding private, multi, and instrument ratings and is one of the few civilians who’ve ever had to chance to fly both the F-16, and the FA-18. Even “trapping” (landing) and catapulting from the deck of the USS Harry S Truman.

He has a passion for our military, for clear reasons. Doug’s dad was a Sergeant First Class in the United States Army, but passed away in Vietnam just as his second tour of duty there, was coming to a close.

Doug is also an avid Triathlon racer, at Sprint, Olympic, and 70.3 distances. Even qualifying and competing at the USAT National Championships in 2013, 2014, and 2015.

And in the rare and obscure sport of barefoot waterskiing, he is a former National Champion, and former record holder.

Above all, he’s a husband, and father of two. A lover of life, and all the blessings it has to offer.
