Sam Dick


Sam is a veteran broadcast journalist who is best known for his 34-year career as a News Anchor at WKYT-TV in Lexington. Sam retired from the CBS affiliate in 2021.

Sam’s reporting has covered some of the Commonwealth’s most important stories including the crash of Flight 5191 at Blue Grass Airport, UK Final Four appearances and national championships.

As a Field Anchor, Sam covered major floods, tornado damage, and ice storms, local and state election results and several presidential inaugurations from Washington DC.

Over his long and storied career, Sam’s work has been recognized with six regional Emmy awards as well as Edward R Murrow awards.

Sam joined WEKU in June 2022 as a part-time reporter. Sam says the move to public radio brings him full circle as his broadcast career began at the University of Georgia student-run radio station in 1977.
