Lori Dunn has been a reporter at the Texarkana Gazette since 1996, which seems impossible, because there is no way she can be that old. As a child, Lori loved to interview people for a made-up talk show and write stories for a made-up magazine. Journalism became a reality for her in the 1990's when she signed up for journalism classes at Texarkana College. During her time at the Gazette, she has covered the police beat and breaking news, has been coordinator of Active Age Magazine since 2007 and is also a general assignment reporter. Lori is a native of De Queen, Ark. She has a bachelor's degree in English from East Texas State University-Texarkana. She loves to read and retreat to the woods on weekends with her animals.
