Doug Johnson joined FOX5 as a reporter in April 2010 from KOHD-TV in Bend, Oregon.
Doug helped launch KOHD, one of the newest television newsrooms in the country as a reporter covering everything from wild fires and President Barack Obama's campaign, to a woman living with more than 100 cats.
A true "one man band" reporter, Johnson acted as camera man, writer, and editor and on occasion even ran teleprompter.
Doug also worked behind the scenes and on the assignment desk at KGO-TV in San Francisco.
Along with Matt DeLucia, Elizabeth Watts, Jon Castagnino and other FOX5 staff, Doug helped win a Pacific Southwest regional Emmy Award for Team Coverage on the death of Dan Wheldon, who passed October 16, 2011 after an Indy car crash at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Doug was also an Emmy presenter during the 36th annual Northern California Emmy Awards.
He left his hometown of San Anselmo, California and traveled north to earn a B.A in Journalism/Electronic Media from the University of Oregon in Eugene. He worked for the campus television program Duck U and the National Broadcasting Society.
After spending a few years in the rainy Pacific Northwest, Doug is thrilled to be in the sunshine and desert heat of the valley.
"Reporting in Las Vegas is a dream come true. I'm glad to be making money in Vegas especially when I spent so much on vacation here over the years," he said.
When not reporting, you might find Doug watching a Giants baseball or Oregon Ducks game in a sports book, attending a rock concert or cruising the Strip.
He enjoys snowboarding, playing guitar, traveling and is active with the Big Brothers and Sisters of America.
