Doug Boynton

Host, All Things Considered

Doug Boynton is the afternoon host for the All Things Considered weekday afternoons on WHRV. He grew up in Michigan, but he believes spending more than half his adult life in Virginia makes him a Virginian.

A journalist early on, Doug served as News Director at radio stations in Michigan and Virginia – and was the News and Operations Manager at WNIS Radio in Norfolk from its launch in 1979 until 1988. Along the way, the Virginia Associated Press named the station "Outstanding News Operation in Virginia."

He then moved into content sales and marketing, serving affiliated radio, television, and digital outlets for Metro Networks in the United States and the US Broadcasting Board of Governors worldwide - including Voice of America. The global team he led brought record audiences to VOA in 2017.

Doug retired from the federal government in 2018, and in 2021, he returned to his first love – writing and reporting the news for WHRV.

Doug studied journalism and broadcast communications at Eastern Michigan University and marketing and management at Old Dominion University.

Doug enjoys listening to jazz vocalists – he writes an occasional blog reviewing female artists. He also enjoys watching baseball and hockey. He and his wife have one grown son and live in Virginia Beach.
