Ginger Allen Career

Allen works for CBS DFW/ KTVT in Dallas-Fort Worth serving as a senior Investigative Reporter.  She’s an award-winning journalist who has transited the country investigating wrong-doings, following trials, and covering hurricanes. Ginger earned an Edward R. Murrow Award after supporting a North Texas mother in tracking down lost cord blood she desperately required for her sick child. After she started investigating, authorities closed down the blood bank. Ginger then uncovered loopholes in the entire cord blood banking industry that were potentially setting others at risk.

She has also been acknowledged countless times by the Dallas Bar Association. Ginger was awarded the organization’s Grand Prize Stephen Philbin Award for her constant investigation into suspicious deaths and medical standards at a Texas State Jail. The series of reports earned national attention from civil rights groups around the country. Lawmakers ultimately shut the facility. Ginger earned other Philbin honors after investigating the fire that killed a veteran Dallas Firefighter — which ultimately led to on-scene procedural changes — and for giving a voice to an innocent mother who saw a crime and was thrust behind bars as a criminal.

Ginger commenced as a general assignment reporter at CBS 11 in 1999. Previously, she also co-anchored the CBS 11 Weekend News and CBS 11 This Morning.
