Dawn Sterling co-anchors WAND News at 5, 6 and 10. 

Dawn is happy to call Central Illinois home.   Starting at WAND in 2004— she loves bringing you the news.  Originally from a suburb of Detroit, some of the best things she likes about Decatur is the warmth of everyone she meets and the array of fantastic community events and committees in which she can get involved.

She loves running into friendly faces at the stores and while out and about with her kids in Central Illinois.  Don't hesitate to say "Hi!" or give her story idea.  The most common comment she hears is how different she looks on the news.  Dawn says that's likely because she doesn't wear much makeup while running around!

Dawn has served on the Women of Excellence committee, and the Catholic Charities and BabyTALK boards.  She was also on the committee that opened Decatur's first dog park, Fido Fields and is a 2007 Graduate of the Decatur Leadership Institute.

On her down time, Dawn loves spending time with her husband Scott, her daughter Ella and her son, Asher.
