Biography

Doug Sovern began his career as a copy boy at the New York Times, and then moved to California to play in a rock band. After hundreds of gigs and one indie album failed to make him a rock star, Doug returned to journalism, working for Associated Press Radio and San Francisco station K-101.

He worked briefly at KGO before joining KCBS in 1990. Sovern has won more than 125 broadcast journalism awards, including national honors from the Society of Professional Journalists, the RTNDA/Edward R. Murrow awards, and the National Headliner Awards. He was the first three-time winner of the AP's Reporter of the Year Award for California/Nevada, honored in 1999, 2003 and 2004.
