When you wake up with FOX 9 in the Morning, you see Dawn bright and early. She anchors the 4:30am-6am news, and reports after that on the big stories of the day. Dawn is the daughter of an Air Force Major, but she says she was lucky enough to grow up mostly in the Midwest. She and her hubby have two young kids, a boy and a girl, which Dawn says gives her the perfect balance. Dawn has travelled and worked on both coasts, and although she’s not the biggest fan of our cold winters (right, Dawn?) she says nothing compares to the Midwest. And who knew she was such a good poker player?
