A Kentucky girl glad to be back in the Bluegrass State!
Tabnie Dozier is from Lexington and comes to WHAS from our ABC affiliate in Evansville, Indiana. Most recently Tabnie served as a Morning Anchor and Co-host, and filled multiple roles covering breaking news, Producing and Reporting.
Story-telling is her passion and she enjoys the challenge of digging deeper than simply talking to officials, but finding the voice of the people, those who are affected and matter the most. Tabnie is an Emmy nominated and award-winning Reporter receiving personal honors from the Indiana Society of Professional Journalists for breaking news coverage in 2012 and 2013. She's also been a part of SPJ and Associated Press Team Awards for Best Newscast, Best Coverage of November 2013 tornadoes that ravaged parts of the Tri-state and Best Coverage of a December snow and ice storm that rolled through Evansville.
Tabnie graduated Cum Laude from Western Kentucky University in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Broadcast News and a Minor in Spanish. She helped anchor and report for WKU's student run newscast, Newschannel 12. From Dr. Martin Luther King Jr; "Life's most persistent question is what are you doing for others," a mantra Tabnie holds close to her. She is a dedicated and active member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, a historically black public service organization made up of more than 300,000 college educated women. From volunteering at nursing homes, sending care packages overseas to mentoring our youth, Tabnie is committed to helping our community both locally and globally.
She loves cheering on her Kentucky Wildcats, playing basketball and traveling. Have any story ideas or concerns, send her an email at email@example.com or tweet her @WHAS11Tabnie.
