A UCLA graduate, McDougal holds a Bachelor's in English and a Master's in Journalism. He was awarded a John S.

Over the years, his journalism has won over 50 honors, including the National Headliners and George Peabody Award. He was a producer for CNN during the O.J. Simpson murder trial and co-produced "Inventing L.A.: The Chandlers and Their Times" (2009) for PBS. McDougal has lectured in journalism and creative writing at UCLA, Stanford, and the California State Universities at Fullerton and Long Beach. He and his wife, Sharon, live near Memphis, Tennessee, have five children, and 15 grandchildren.
