Mason Dowling

Hello, everyone! I’m Mason Dowling, Multimedia Journalist and Weekend Anchor for Heart of Illinois ABC.

I was born and raised down in Belleville, Illinois, just east of St. Louis. I attended Loyola University up in Chicago, originally under the premise of going into Medical School – but after taking a few journalism courses, I knew I had found my calling.

I didn’t let that deter my medical drive, though, and enjoy medical reporting. Since school, I’ve worked as an Associate Producer at WPSD Channel 6 in Paducah, Kentucky before I was fortunate enough to be hired on in Peoria. I can play seven different instruments and enjoy playing and writing music, camping, and reading science fiction.
