Doug Vaughn returned home to St Louis in 1988 to join KMOV as sports anchor and reporter. Today Doug anchors News 4 weeknights at 6 and 10. He is also the host of Sports Sunday, a one-hour show featuring local and national sports news.
Vaughn's professional accomplishments include winning eight St. Louis Emmy Awards. He is a five-time winner of the "Best Sportscaster" Emmy, receiving the award in 1992, 1993, 1995, 1996 and 2000. He has also won Emmys in the categories of "Best Sports Reporting" and "Best Sports Feature."
He says that his most memorable story was following Mark McGwire's record-breaking 70 home run season in 1998. Covering the historical event from spring training to the last day of the season was extraordinarily exciting for Vaughn.
Prior to joining News 4, Vaughn gained broadcasting experience as an anchor and reporter for WSVN in Miami, Fla, and as Sports Director for KTTC in Rochester, Minn.
A lover of all sports, Vaughn excelled in baseball and played for two years at St. Louis Community College at Meramec before transferring to the University of Missouri-Columbia during his junior year. Now his baseball is limited to coaching little league teams.
Vaughn is a graduate from the University of Missouri-Columbia where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism.
