Clarice Tinsley (born December 31, 1954) is an American broadcast journalist. In November 1978, she moved to the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex to anchor the ten o'clock news for KDFW.[1] In 1979 the six o'clock news was added to her duties.[2] As of 2012, she is the longest-serving news anchor in the Dallas/Fort Worth television market.

Prior to KDFW, she spent three years working for WITI-TV in Milwaukee. At WITI her duties included being the host of a monthly community affairs show, news reporter and news anchor.[3]

Tinsley has appeared as a news anchor or reporter in several Dallas-based television productions, including The Good Guys and Prison Break.

Awards[edit]

In the 1980s, her work on "A Call For Help," an investigative reporting series on problems with Dallas' 911 emergency system, earned KDFW both a Peabody Award in 1984 and a 1980 Alfred I. duPont–Columbia University Award for investigative journalism.[4]

In 2007 she was awarded the Director's Community Leadership Award from the FBI.[5]
