Theo Dorsey joined the FOX8 family March 2019 as a reporter.
It’s a welcome to the Piedmont Triad for the Missouri City, Texas, native, but NASCAR country is far from his first lap in the South.
He comes to North Carolina after a 4-year stint in Georgia where he was the Sports Director at WALB News 10.
In 2018, The Georgia Associations of Broadcasters named him “Best Sports Reporter.” In 2017, Theo won 2nd place for “Best sports” from the Georgia Associated Press Media Editors.
From The Masters to the 2018 SEC Championship, Theo had his fair share of fun talking sports in the Peach State.
He also covered some of the tragic storms that impacted South Georgia, including the tornadoes of 2017 and Hurricane Michael’s landfall in 2018.
A month before landing in Georgia, Theo graduated from Hampton University in 2015.
At his “Home by the Sea” in Virginia, Theo won the Dean’s award as the top senior in the Journalism School, was runner-up in the national AOL Sports Search for the next great sportscaster, journeyed through the Sports Journalism Institute (Class of ’13) and interned at several outlets including NBC Sports, AOL Sports and ESPN Radio 97.5.
Theo lives by his mother’s scripture for him (1 Corinthians 2:9) and feels the best is ahead of him. He’s pumped to call the Triad home!
