Texas Today host

Kristin Dickerson-2019
NBC 5 News

As the original co-host of Texas Today, Kristin Dickerson has taken viewers on adventures all around North Texas and beyond!  Her energy and passion are what drive viewers to tune in to see her share the best of North Texas. 

Kristin Dickerson is a seasoned Emmy award-winning reporter and former weekend evening anchor for NBC 5 Dallas-Ft. Worth. Prior to NBC 5, Kristin worked as an anchor/reporter/photographer in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

She earned her first Emmy for her series on faith; interviewing people of various religions while focusing on how their faith guides their lives. Finding fulfillment through creativity, Kristin has also earned a variety of odd accomplishments: she rode (and fell off of) Oklahoma’s largest Holstein bull, survived noodling for catfish, skydiving, scuba diving (later receiving a wedding proposal while diving in the Florida Keys), cycled 160 miles in two days for Multiple Sclerosis and rappelled off two high-rise buildings for charity.

Outside of work, she and her husband, Peter, are avid gardeners, once (now retired) chicken raisers, and random critter feeders. They’ve traveled to India six times (two of which included spending the first week with only the clothes on their backs). Most recently, they walked the 500-mile Camino de Santiago across Spain.

Kristin left her hometown, Las Cruces, New Mexico, to attend Oklahoma State University. As a freshman, Kristin walked-on the women’s equestrian team; as a senior, she earned the sport’s top honor at that time: the AQHA Highpoint Western Rider.
