- WLWT News 5News Anchor/Reporter
Living and working in Greater Cincinnati since 2002, Todd Dykes is driven to help make WLWT the top news station in the Tri-State. He feels privileged to come to work each morning even if it does mean waking up hours before dawn to prepare for News 5 Today.
Todd joined the News 5 team as a reporter after working for top-rated stations in Bowling Green, KY, Lexington, KY, and Colorado Springs, CO.
A native of Ashland, KY, Todd graduated from Western Kentucky University with a degree in broadcasting and a minor in English.
As a veteran broadcast journalist Todd's committed to giving a voice to the voiceless. He's constantly reminded of - and amazed by - journalism's ability to empower the powerless. He’s also keenly aware of the need for accurate and timely news considering how cluttered the media landscape is today.
During his career, Todd has covered numerous stories - from the deployment of U.S. troops to multiple war fronts to presidential campaigns. He's done interviews with countless newsmakers, including former First Lady Laura Bush and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Todd's also been fortunate to talk to legendary entertainers like blues legend Bo Diddley and bluegrass pioneer Bill Monroe.
When Todd's not at WLWT News 5 he and his wife spend most of their waking hours trying to keep up with their 2 boys. As a proud dad Todd's primary focus is to make sure his sons grow up to be respectful young men who love to learn and laugh and who develop a true appreciation for the Reds, Bengals and the UK Wildcats!http://www.wlwt.com/WLWT-News-5-TODAY-Anchor/-/9838586/14418246/-/whil45z/-/index.html#ixzz2dBjv6OaZ
