Bob Donaldson is an American television news anchor employed at Tribune Broadcasting-owned CBS affiliate WTTV and Fox affiliate WXIN in Indianapolis, Indiana. Donaldson co-anchors the 10:00 PM newscasts on WXIN with Fanchon Stinger, and also co-anchors WTTV's 5:00 PM, 6:00 PM and 11:00 PM newscasts with Debby Knox.


After graduating from Missouri's School of Journalism, Bob Donaldson began his career at KBMT-TV in Beaumont, Texas.[1] While in Beaumont, he met and married his wife, Skye Winslow. In 1984, Donaldson left KBMT and signed-on with KFOR-TV (then KTVY) in Oklahoma City as a reporter. His wife, Skye, who was also in the broadcast industry, worked as a co-host of the popular entertainment show, PM Magazine. For years Bob and Skye would move from state to state as each one grew in their career. When Skye landed a job at KUTV in Salt Lake City, Bob left KFOR and joined her, working as a news reporter at KUTV. After two years at the NBC affiliate, Bob and Skye were offered positions back in Oklahoma City, once again with KFOR. Now the parents of a one-year-old daughter, Laura, Skye eventually left the business and Bob landed a job as the main news anchor at KARK in Little Rock, Arkansas. Donaldson made his final career move to WXIN-TV in Indianapolis in 1991 - anchoring the popular and much celebrated 10PM newscast (originally called Nightcast). As WXIN expanded its newscasts, Donaldson developed a larger role in the newsroom and eventually landed a role as the station's Managing Editor. On January 1, 2015, Donaldson started co-anchoring the early and late evening newscasts on sister station WTTV, which had just switched its affiliation from The CW to CBS. The newscasts broadcast at 5 pm, 6 pm, and 11 pm, and team Donaldson with former WISH-TV news anchor Debby Knox. Donaldson continues to team with Fanchon Stinger on WXIN's signature 10 p.m. newscast.[2]

Donaldson is an Emmy Award winning journalist and is very active in the community.
