Dawn Timmeney joined the FOX 29 team January of 2013, and is on the "Dawn Patrol," waking up early with the Good Day Philadelphia gang.

Prior to joining FOX 29, Dawn spent twelve years as an anchor at NBC 10 in Philadelphia, where she won an Emmy for Outstanding Entertainment Broadcast. An avid pet lover, Dawn also co-produced and hosted "Dawn's Pet Project", an entertaining and informative weekly show about animals which aired on NBC NonStop on Comcast.

Before moving to Philadelphia, Dawn anchored at WBRE-TV, the NBC-affiliate in Wilkes-Barre, PA. She co-anchored the 5pm, 6pm and 11pm news, with the 5pm and 11pm winning Emmy Awards for Best Newscast.  Dawn kicked off her television career as a reporter and anchor for two years at WFMZ-TV in Allentown, PA.

In 1993, Dawn and her husband founded the Max and Lorraine Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to helping children who suffer from asthma. In conjunction with the American Lung Association, they established Camp AsthmaCadabra in the Pocono Mountains, for children who would otherwise be denied a summer camping experience because of their asthma.

Dawn is an Honorary Board Member of the Crohns and Colitis Foundation, as well as the "Little Smiles" organization. She is also a huge education advocate and a former member of the Board of Trustees for Community Partnership School.

Dawn and her husband, Mike, have a 12-year-old daughter named Oona.  She also has a 27-year- old stepson, Eamon.  She loves the outdoors and spends her winters skiing and summers sailing in the Poconos.
