Best TV Anchor: Dawn Lopez

Best TV Anchor: Dawn Lopez

Born and raised in Jacksonville, Dawn Lopez has been a part of our community from day one. And she’s become a part of our homes as an anchor on Action News Jax This Morning and Action News Jax at Noon.

The beloved news personality graduated from the University of North Florida where she worked at the campus radio and television stations. After graduation, Lopez moved to Columbus, Georgia, but quickly realized her home was in Jacksonville. Once she returned to the River City, Lopez swiftly got into the swing of things with Action News Jax. 

Not only is Lopez an award-winning anchor, she’s also an outstanding citizen, giving back to the community through projects like Family Support Services that assists in the adoption of hundreds of children around the area, as well as organizing nonprofit events for local schools and civic centers. 

Turns out Lopez is a golden girl on and off the screen. –Carmen Macri
