Dorsena Drakeford is an anchor and reporter at WKYC of Cleveland. She specializes in general assignment reporting. In the initiation of her career, Dorsena contributed to KTXS Television in Abilene, Texas, where she took the role of a production assistant.
She was quick to learn the depths of the industry in merely six months. Reporting was the dominant start for her career. She did reporting on weekends at first, and she found her passion for the criminal justice system.
After completing her two years as the crime and courts reporter, Dorsena moved on to broaden her career. She headed to Cedar Rapids, which came out as one of the most exciting places to live for her. There, she worked at KGAN/KFXA as a crime reporter for over two years.
The reporter got the chance to cover stories that broke internationally. She then received several regional awards and discovered the true meaning of the cultural label, ‘Iowa nice.’ And when WKYC called, Dorsena wasted no time to embrace the opportunity to stay in the Midwest and work along with Michael Estime.
