WGAL News 8 Evening Weather Anchor
Introduction

Doug Allen delivers the weather forecast each weekday during "News 8 at 5," "News 8 at 5:30," "News 8 at 6" and "News 8 at 11."

Doug assumed his duties with WGAL's news department in April 1989, after having co-hosted the station's edition of "PM MAGAZINE" for more than four and a half years.

Winner of an Emmy Award for Best Weathercaster, Doug works closely and consults with News 8's chief meteorologist, Joe Calhoun. Together they operate this area's most complete and state-of-the-art weather center.

Doug grew up in Bethel, Conn. Upon graduation from high school, he was awarded an American Legion Scholarship. Doug attended Jones College in Jacksonville, Fla., graduating with a degree in broadcast management.

Beginning his career as a radio program director in Cape Cod, Mass., Doug later worked as an afternoon announcer on CBS radio station WHTT in Boston. While in Boston, he also hosted a music video show on WNEV-TV.

Particularly enthusiastic about his association with the 21-hour on-air Children's Miracle Network Telethon, Doug co-hosts the major event each spring on WGAL. Proceeds from the telethon stay in the Susquehanna Valley area and benefit the Penn State University Hospital at the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.
