Doug Warner anchors KSLA News 12 at 6:00 and 10:00 after first joining the KSLA family in 2009 as a co-anchor of KSLA News 12 This Morning.

During his time at KSLA, Doug has earned numerous EMMY awards, multiple Reporter of the Year honors from the Louisiana Associated Press and Association of Broadcasters, and won both regional and national Edward R. Murrow awards. Through the years, Doug has also been honored by the Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma Associated Press, Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters and Oklahoma Society of Professional Journalists for his feature, sports and weather reporting.

Doug is also an avid storm chaser, a love he skillfully learned from some of the best chasers in tornado alley.

Doug previously worked as a morning show anchor and reporter at Oklahoma City's KWTV where he covered major weather events from tornadoes across Oklahoma, to hurricanes Katrina and Rita in Louisiana. While at KCEN in Waco, Doug was the first reporter in the nation to secure an interview with eventual President-elect George W. Bush just days after the 2000 election. He also was asked to emcee the Crawford, Texas Presidential Inauguration Ball, attended by President Bush and the First Lady.

Doug's love of sports also led him to the sports anchor desk in the late 90s, reporting from such events as Astros spring training, the Maui Classic basketball tournament, and the PGA’s Houston Open.

Doug graduated high school from DeRidder, La., later earning a BS in Mass Communications from McNeese State. Doug, Ashley, and their four children now call Benton, La home.
