2014 marks Darwin's 34th year of either anchoring or reporting television news. This year offers another milestone for Darwin, he is now co-anchor of Local 15 Today, teaming up with co-anchor Kelly Jones and meteorologist Deitra Tate. Darwin will still offer up on-site reporting, as well as the occasional feature segment that has made him a fixture in the Mobile/Pensacola television community for 26 years!
Darwin was born in Hazard, Kentucky in the Appalachian Mountains.
He worked in local radio in high school and community college before transferring to the University of Kentucky in Lexington. He then worked in radio in Lexington until 1980, switching to television news.
Darwin served as South Kentucky Bureau reporter and, later, police beat reporter for CBS affiliate WKYT-TV in Lexington. He became weekend anchor in his hometown of Hazard for the CBS affiliate WYMT-TV.
In 1987, tired of the snow and cold of winter, Darwin headed south to the Gulf, landing at the local CBS affiliate in Mobile. Late in 1999, Darwin accepted a position at WPMI Local 15 News as a feature reporter with his popular "Here's Darwin!" reports. 2014 sees him transitioning to the anchor desk, giving him another opportunity to communicate with his loyal viewers.
Darwin owns a century-old home in Midtown Mobile, in the city's Old Dauphin Way Historic District. Here at Local 15, his passion for Carnival has earned him the nickname of Mobile's Mr. Mardi Gras!
