Don Nelson

Don Nelson
Throughout his twenty-plus years at KTRK-TV, Don Nelson has worn many hats and handled many jobs!

He joined the station as co-host for its morning show, "Dialing for Dollars" which was later formatted to "Good Morning Houston." Don also served as the morning newscast's traffic reporter - a job he still maintains.

His role has currently expanded to include serving as the Entertainment Reporter for Eyewitness News. This involves traveling to Los Angeles each season to interview the new ABC program stars. During his career with ABC13, Don has helped co-host almost all of the station's special programs. From the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Parade to the city's Power of Houston festival, Don's been on the scene and on-the-air.

Each year he also pitches in help in the station's Share Your Christmas Food Drive and March of Dimes Infant Goods drive. Viewers and fellow employees know Don as a man who loves to cook! And those who are lucky enough to taste his culinary talents are never disappointed!
