Dallas Payeton

Dallas Payeton joined Local 3 News in February of 2022.

He was born and raised right here in the Scenic City. Dallas split his high school career between Signal Mountain and Ridgeland, before attending the Fort Valley State University (HBCU) where he earned his Bachelor's from in 2019.

Before joining the Local 3 News as a reporter, he was one of our interns. The internship helped him land his first reporter gig in Lawton, Oklahoma at KSWO-TV.

Outside of reporting, you’d likely run into Dallas at one of the many local food spots around Chattanooga, at a fitness center, or out shopping for the latest fashion trends.
