Hi there! I’m Olivia Dague, a reporter here at WBIR as of June 2023!

I was born and raised in Arlington, Texas, so I’m a ways from home. Growing up I spent my time outside of school dancing, singing, playing guitar and performing around DFW. In high school, I joined the newspaper staff and fell in love with telling stories.

I left Texas and crossed the Red River to the University of Oklahoma to study Broadcast Journalism and minor in Political Science and International Studies (Boomer Sooner!). I became involved in the school’s award-winning, student-produced newscast, OU Nightly, where I was able to get experience, continue to craft my love of telling stories, and meet lifelong friends. I spent summers interning with NBC 5 in Dallas and KSL in Salt Lake City.

Now, I get to continue doing what I love and telling stories every day at WBIR in beautiful East Tennessee! I miss my family and friends but am so happy to have the opportunity to grow as a person and a journalist in a new place. I might have a hard time wearing orange, but I am so happy to be in Knoxville and use this job to help others.

When I’m not telling stories, you can find me working out, playing guitar or hanging out with friends.
