Doug Currin is an Emmy & Edward R. Murrow award winning journalist whose work has taken him from New York City to Germany, Kuwait and being embedded in the war in Iraq in Baghdad, Currin has covered nearly every aspect of momentous journalism for over a decade.
In December of 2010, he joined KCEN-HD News as the evening anchor for the day's 5:00, 6:00 and 10:00 pm newscasts and simultaneously contributes to all media platforms within KCEN. While at channel 6, Currin steered coverage for several major nationally-covered breaking stories: the second Ft. Hood shootings, Twin Peaks Massacre, The West, TX explosion and the Dallas shootings.
Before moving to central Texas and developing an incredibly unhealthy addiction to sweet tea, Doug was a producer for Wolf Blitzer at CNN in Washington, D.C. then evening anchor and reporter in Yuma, AZ, Fayetteville, AR, and Scranton, PA.
At CNN, Currin covered the war in Iraq, the death of President Ronald Reagan, the capture of Saddam Hussein, as well as several hurricanes, presidential elections and congressional events. Currin also worked on several Sunday political talk shows with Wolf Blitzer and Judy Woodruff based in the District.
No stranger to the military, Doug has anchored and reported military news for over a third of his life. Covering MCAS Yuma, Yuma Proving Ground, Fort Hood and USAF El Centro, Doug has consistently been at the forefront of military journalism—flying with the Blue Angels and jumping with the U.S. Army's Golden Knights, even traveling to Germany, Kuwait, and Baghdad to cover the war in Iraq with III Corps based at Ft. Hood.. His father was also a Captain in the U.S. Navy. You can catch Doug's reports in his segment, "Military Matters," airing nightly on KCEN-HD News.

Since then, Doug has been awarded several times for his journalistic and community work over the years.
