Episode 138. Dawne Gee – Journalist & WAVE 3 News Anchor
Dawne Gee grew up dreaming of working in communications.
In August 1994, Dawne joined WAVE 3 News, where she had applied nine times before they hired her as a writer in the promotions department. Eventually, Dawne filled in for an anchor on “WAVE Listens,” a television talk show. Four years later, she was named the morning anchor of WAVE 3 News.
Dawne now co-anchors the 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. newscasts and hosts “WAVE Country with Dawne Gee,” which profiles people making a difference in our community and highlights events of interest in the area.
Dawne is involved in many charitable organizations and serves on the board of the Kentucky Brain Injury Association. She frequently donates her time to serve groups that need help, and is especially active lending her time to local healthcare not-for- profits. In 2010, she was selected Louisvillian of the Year by Leo magazine. Her extensive speaking engagements on behalf of the community are upwards to 200 a year.
A Louisville-native, Dawne earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and a Bachelor of Arts in Biology from the University of Louisville. Her faith and family keep her grounded. She has two sons and a daughter.
