Doug Petcash is an anchor at KTVB.

Doug is the anchor of the weekday KTVB News at Noon, 4 and 6 p.m. and the Sunday News at 10.

He was born and raised in a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and earned a bachelor of arts degree in Journalism from Penn State University.

Doug has been a television reporter/anchor since 1990. His first job was in the State College Bureau of WJAC-TV, the NBC affiliate covering the Johnstown/Altoona/State College market in Pennsylvania. He has earned many journalism honors including seven Emmys, two Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards, as well as awards from the Idaho Press Club, Michigan Associated Press and Michigan Association of Broadcasters.

In the late 1990's Doug worked as an anchor/reporter in the Pocatello/Idaho Falls area. Then, after spending 8 years in Northern Michigan, Doug decided to come back to Idaho to work with Maggie O'Mara and Larry Gebert on "Wake Up Idaho." He says the scenic beauty and people of Idaho drew him back.

In his spare time Doug writes and records original music. He also enjoys hiking, downhill and cross country skiing, reading just about anything and everything, and spending as much time as possible with his wife.

Doug has served on the Board of Directors for the Meridian Food Bank since 2016, and has volunteered with the organization since 2011.
