Dallas Payeton joined the KSWO family as a multimedia journalist in 2020. A Chattanooga, Tennessee native, Dallas earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Media Studies with a concentration in broadcasting from Fort Valley State University in 2019. Fort Valley State is a historically black college (HBCU), and Dallas is a proud alumnus. He graduated cum laude and worked as an intern for two years at Chattanooga’s top local news stations, WRCB & WTVC.
His passion for journalism became evident during his time as an intern and ultimately led him to begin his career with KSWO a month before the pandemic hit Southwest Oklahoma.
In his spare time Dallas enjoys participating in fitness activities, shopping for the latest fashion trends, and spending time with friends and family.
