Desirae Duncan is a native of Kentucky and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Kentucky with a degree in journalism. Before coming to WLOX, she was a multimedia journalist at WALB in Albany, GA, and started at WAVE in Louisville, KY as a news content specialist and digital content producer.
Desirae’s start in news was in middle school, where she was known for waking up the school every morning with an enthusiastic "Good morning, Bluegrass! I'm Desirae Duncan - your weathergirl!" She hopes to bring that same enthusiasm to her reporting in South Mississippi.
When she’s not on air, she’s spending time with her rescue dog, Winn Dixie, traveling, shopping or cheering on her Kentucky Wildcats.
On Tuesday, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College is hosting a job fair for the hospitality industry. It’s an industry with plenty of available jobs for qualified workers, as hotels and restaurants struggle to fill positions.
The Environmental Protection Agency recognized Bayou Town Productions for the work they do to teach kids how to keep the Gulf clean and healthy by awarding them with the Gulf Guardian Award for environmental youth education.
Feeding the Gulf Coast teamed up with the Mississippi Public Health Institute, Society of St. Andrew, Rouses Supermarket and other local partners for a Produce Drop at First Baptist Church of Biloxi on Saturday.
