Doug Johnson is a producer at WVLT News, a native of Memphis, Tennessee, and a graduate of the University of Tennessee.

During college, Doug got his start in media on the radio, hosting several music and news shows on WUTK, 90.3 The Rock. After graduating in 2011, he worked for the PBS NewsHour, CBS Radio and the iA Institute in Washington, D.C.

Ultimately, the pull to move back to East Tennessee was strong, and Doug joined the WVLT team in February 2017. He now brings you the latest every night as the producer of WVLT's 6:00 p.m. broadcast.

Doug is all Vol, with a deep love for UT, both on the field and off of it. You'll also catch him cheering on the Memphis Grizzlies, Tennessee Titans, Tottenham Hotspur and the Washington Nationals.

He's also an animal lover, with a dog, Agent Dale Cooper, and two cats, Zeus and Penelope. His pets are sneaky, and sometimes find ways to get on air.
