Joe Donlon is a weeknight anchor on NewsNation.
A St. Louis native, Donlon returned to the Midwest in early 2018 to anchor the evening news for Chicago’s Very Own WGN-TV.
Donlon came to Chicago after 21 years as the main anchor at KGW-TV (NBC) in Portland, Oregon. Before that, he spent 10 years at KVOA-TV (NBC) in Tucson. He started his career at KZTV (CBS) in Corpus Christi, Texas.
His reporting has taken him as far away as Kuwait, just days after the end of Operation Desert Storm. There have been conventions, impeachments, Olympics, National Championship football and basketball games, and more.
Donlon and his wife, Kathleen, have three grown children who are all living in Chicago.
