2020-2021 WCGL Speakers Announced

 

Fake news, “breaking news”, social media, TV/ radio talk shows with experts…how does one sift through a 24-hour news cycle to discern the facts? Join us as we welcome Arezow Doost…a journalist and investigative reporter who will share her insight into “FACT vs. FAKE” at our Feb. 22nd General Meeting at Flintrock C.C.

Arezow Doost is an Emmy Award-winning journalist who joined KXAN in August of 2016 as an investigative reporter.

This isn’t Arezow’s first stint in Austin. She attended the University of Texas and also worked in the city professionally nearly a decade ago. This time, she returns with her family including her husband and three kids Zade, Kai and Zara.

Before arriving in Austin, Arezow spent seven years working in Dallas-Fort Worth reporting and anchoring. During her time she led investigations into rural county cover-ups, political misconduct, and consumer complaints. Her series of reports on school bullying inside one North Texas school district led to permanent changes within the district including how officials respond to bullying. Furthermore, she won a Lone Star Emmy Award for a half-hour special exposing the depth of bullying inside North Texas communities.

 

Arezow grew up in Kabul, Afghanistan. Some of her earliest childhood memories include watching Soviet tanks and troops on city streets. Her family escaped Afghanistan during the Russian invasion by fleeing to the Afghan-Pakistan border. There they lived in refugee camps and later moved to Germany before eventually finding a permanent home in Texas. A family friend taught Arezow and her siblings English after they arrived.
