Marjorie Owens is a multi-skilled journalist at WFAA in Dallas, TX specializing in digital content creation.
1) Who are you? Born in New Orleans, I consider myself a Texan after more than three decades in the state (plus all the barbecue and Tex-Mex I’ve consumed).
A University of North Texas graduate, I’ve been with WFAA since 2005, where I’m now a digital multi-skilled journalist. During my time with the station, I’ve covered hundreds of stories that have impacted our local and national communities. When Hurricane Katrina tragically struck New Orleans, Ebola found its way to North Texas and five Dallas police officers were killed as they protected marchers fighting for black lives, I was privileged to work in a space to share those stories from their beginnings to ends.
2) What are your interests? When not at work, my passions veer toward movies, art and music, and you can frequently find me playing my vinyl collection at either Single Wide or Midnight Rambler in Dallas.
3) What do you like about working at WFAA? What I love about my job here at WFAA first and foremost is the ability to listen and reach out to the community. When something happens, I’m not only able to observe, but I can also disseminate that information to the public.
4) What's one thing people would be surprised to learn about you? Something many would find surprising about myself is I once ran a local music label, Pour le Corps. So during the day I was writing breaking news and at night listening to live music and designing covers for vinyl and tape (yep, tape) releases.
