Todd Unger is an Emmy-award winning journalist who joined WFAA in January of 2013. He is thrilled to be reporting at such a legendary station that has long set the bar for news in Texas and beyond.
He previously worked at the ABC affiliate KOAT in Albuquerque where he broke a number of high-profile investigations, including a series of shady land deals where taxpayers lost millions of dollars. His stories on a funeral home operating without proper licensing, which prevented it from handing out death certificates, also helped force a change in state law. He also received an Emmy for a story on a major gun robbery at a historic New Mexico ranch.
During the 2012 election cycle, Unger served as the station's go-to political reporter, routinely interviewing and covering everyone from state senators and Governor Susana Martinez to national figures like Senators John McCain and John Kerry, and also President Barack Obama.
Earlier in his career, he anchored and reported in Omaha and also western Nebraska.
Unger earned a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Denver and interned at FOX 31 in Denver, Colorado. He was a Big Brother for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Colorado, and a mentor with the TeamMates Mentoring program for Omaha Public Schools.
Todd is an avid golfer and also skis, although not as much as he'd like in Texas! He welcomes story ideas and suggestions.
