DaVonté McKenith comes to NTV all the way from North Carolina. He graduated in 2008 from Independence High School and continued his education at Appalachian State University, where he majored in Communications: Broadcasting & Electronic Media, graduating in May 2012.
DaVonté interned at WBTV News 3 in Charlotte, NC and was also the News Producer for an MTV Award Winning Campus Radio Station, WASU, for three years. He decided to work in news because it allowed him to meet many loyal viewers around the community, and to be able to tell a story with a personal touch. Being able to enter the viewers' home, day-in and night-out, and telling the stories that matter the most to them is what he enjoys most about his job.
DaVonté chose to work at NTV because of the opportunities Nebraska would provide. The moment he had to choose between Nebraska and two other states, he knew the answer without even thinking. Moving clear up to Nebraska gave him the opportunity to learn from and work with the wonderful staff at NTV, all while giving him a chance to meet new people!
When DaVonté isn't researching the latest story, he enjoys hanging out around town, hanging with friends, relaxing, and listening to music! One of his favorite things to do is attend community events. If you have an event you would like DaVonté to attend, don't hesitate to contact him!
