Weekend Sports Anchor/Reporter

Dominique was born and raised in Muhlenberg County (and proud of it), so he grew up watching and loving WBKO.

Growing up a sports fanatic, it was in high school that he began working in broadcasting/journalism for the student news/newspaper.
Dominique attended Western Kentucky University to continue to follow his dream of broadcasting where he graduated in December of 2015.

While a freshman, he had the opportunity to join WBKO on March 26, 2012 as a part-time video editor and videographer.
After working several jobs in the news department, in September of 2015 Dominique was finally able to work his dream job as a sports anchor/reporter.
Some of Dominique's fondest memories working in sports has been covering his alma mater's Conference USA championship victories, receiving his first Associated Press nomination and countless memories with coaches, players and people in the community.
Dominique said he lives by the quote, "If you do something you love, you'll never work a day in your life."​
In his free time, Dominique enjoys spending time with family and friends, exercising, and watching his beloved Louisville Cardinals, Hilltoppers, Tennessee Titans and LA Lakers.
